Your Partner For Renewable BioEnergy

The Canadian BioEnergy Centre (CBEC) operates with a mandate to provide technological support to the bioenergy sector in Canada and beyond. Our goal is to promote the sustainable and responsible use of forest and agricultural bioresources for a diversity of goods and services. This will be accomplished through:

  • Research and development
  • Product testing and certification (e.g. fuel pellets and biomass combustion appliances)
  • Technology transfer
  • Training and education

The initial technical focus of CBEC is on solid biofuels (e.g. pellets, briquettes, and solid biomass) and their combustion performance including energy value and emission characteristics.

CBEC is capable of evaluating the production and utilization of biofuels. Qualified staff work with global biofuel research and industry partners. CBEC is well positioned to assist the Canadian biofuels sector with their technical, education and testing requirements.

Conducting tests on solid biofuels and appliances to national and international standards, CBEC is the only Canadian laboratory registered with the Pellet Fuels Institute (PFI).
