The Bio-Industrial Opportunities Section (BIOS) provides technical and industry development support for the development, scale-up and commercialization of non-food value-added products and applications. Adding value to Alberta’s biomass resources helps to create jobs, stimulate economic diversification and grow the provincial economy.

A team of dedicated professionals can help you advance your bio-based project, from biomaterials and bio-based chemicals to bioenergy and natural health products.

The Bio Processing Innovation Centre (BPIC) – operated by BIOS – provides essential product development and scale-up support. BPIC offers a suite of facilities, lab- and pilot-scale production equipment, and expertise to help companies succeed.
