Description

The aim of the project is to support the strategic Québec‒Mexico bilateral expert group on the optimal recovery of residual agricultural, agroindustrial, and forestry biomass.

Objective(s)

  • Develop specific indicators for selecting the best recovery method based on the intrinsic characteristics of each residual biomass, as well as the availability and potential uses of residual biomass in Canada and Mexico
  • Evaluate the most appropriate strategies and processes for the reuse, processing, and recovery of residual biomass, based on availability, technical and economic feasibility, and environmental impact
  • Develop a strategic plan for knowledge transfer to potential users and actors responsible for making decisions on the use, retrieval, and recovery of residual biomass in both countries
