Bioindustrial Innovation Canada (BIC) is a nationally focused not-for-profit business accelerator based in Sarnia, Ontario. BIC is focused on enabling Canada to become globally recognized leaders in sustainability by:
– converting renewable resources into value-added bioenergy, biofuel, biochemical and biomaterials
– efficiently using the world’s limited resources (eg. water, energy) through innovative technologies
– recovering and reusing the world’s limited resources within the circular economy for use in a wide range of commercial applications along the chemistry value chain to advanced manufacturing, automotive and aerospace.
A tactic to accomplish global leadership has been the development of sustainable chemistry clusters across Canada. For example, the hybrid chemistry cluster in Sarnia-Lambton is well positioned to become a North American leader in industrial bioproducts manufacturing. BIC has played a key role in developing biomass supply chain capability and attracting anchor companies to the region, which form key assets in the cluster’s chemistry value chain.
