Ontario Investing in Forest Biomass Program

Ontario is delivering on its commitment to build a stronger forest sector by making an historic $60 million investment in the Forest Biomass Program.

Over the next three years, the program will make targeted investments in initiatives to develop the economic potential and environmental benefits of underutilized wood and mill by-products, known as forest biomass.

Forest biomass is used in everything from food additives to building materials. and has many emerging uses, including renewable natural gas, bioplastics and hydrogen – responsible alternatives to carbon-intensive products.

These strategic investments will further bolster Ontario’s forest sector by creating business demand, increasing sustainability, and providing greener products and fuels.
