Biomass Workshop and Tour

Manitoba Annual Biomass Workshop and Tour has become a major event in the province. It is focused on biomass energy, and it attracts a large audience, including biomass producers, processors, users, boiler manufacturers and entrepreneurs. Since its inception in 2008, this annual event has been held in communities across the province (e.g. Arborg, Brandon, Portage la Prairie, Steinbach) to address regional biomass issues and to promote biomass opportunities.
The 9th Annual Biomass Workshop and Tour took place March 11, 2016 in Morden. Copies of the workshop presentations are provided at the links below.
