Event Description

Your Connection with Purpose-Grown Energy Crops

As a means to highlight the diverse activities occurring in the biomass industry across Ontario, we encourage you to join us for the Ontario Biomass Regional Tours. 

Each day of the tour is organized to explore various aspects of the biomass value chain. Feel free to create your own agenda for the week from the wide range of tour stops available.

The Ontario Biomass Regional Tour is a free event organized by the Ontario Field-Scale Agricultural Biomass Project. While the event occurs across the province starting Monday September 26th, the tour is organized so that you can attend as few or as many stops as fits your time and interest. Customize the tours for your own interest and time available. Please only visit the tour stops during the times indicated on the registration page.  No facilities are available at these sites, so you are encouraged to attend to meals and washroom breaks prior to or following the stops.

While the event if free, we encourage you to register for the locations you plan to visit so that the site hosts are aware of the numbers to expect.
