SBC Background

The Sustainable Bioeconomy Centre (SBC) at Queen's University focuses on bioenergy and other biomass opportunities within the Great Lakes region.  The SBC vision is to build a coordinated and inclusive community, where stakeholders actively participate in the development of sustainable environmental, economic and ethical uses for biological resources.

With the support of Queen’s renowned academic team, and building upon the foundation of engaged stakeholders assembled by BIOCAP Canada, SBC continues to develop an inclusive and integrated community dedicated to developing the bioeconomy within Great Lakes region.

The SBC community will engage like-minded researchers and individuals, government and industry, and will become the source for credible information, discussion, idea sharing and expert opinion.  United with a common vision, SBC is creating a community of opportunity.
