Scott Wiebe, CEO of the Centre for Research & Innovation in the Bio-economy, discusses CRIBE’s role in linking the forestry sector of Northern Ontario with the chemical and manufacturing sectors of Southern Ontario.
He says CRIBE, based in Thunder Bay, Ontario aims to help take the forestry industry beyond its traditional markets of newsprint, pulp and lumber.
Scott Wiebe was interviewed at the 2nd Annual BioProducts Cluster Workshop held in Toronto, Ontario on March 30-31, 2016. Theme of the event, hosted by Bioindustrial Innovation Canada (BIC), was “Cellulosic Biorefining – From the Farm to the Customer”.
