Registration is now open for the Wood Pellet Association of Canada (WPAC)’s conference and annual general meeting (AGM), taking place from Sept. 20-22. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and travel restrictions, this year’s conference will once again be virtual and free for all attendees.
The theme for this year’s conference is, “Making a Difference Globally and at Home.” Globally, countries and businesses are setting ambitious greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction targets. Here in Canada, policymakers are increasingly focused on developing a low-carbon circular economy and beginning to recognize the potential of wood pellets.
WPAC and Canadian Biomass have put together a condensed agenda reflecting the opportunities for the wood pellet industry and key trends. Topics include:
- Global market perspectives
- Trends in responsible sourcing
- Innovating our way to a safer, better product
- Getting to net zero in Canada with pellets
- The power of pellets in the emerging bioeconomy
The live portion of the conference will take place on Sept. 20 from 8:00 – 11:00 a.m. PST. The AGM – open to all WPAC members – will be on Sept. 21 from 8:00 – 9:30 a.m. PST, and the board of directors meeting will take place on Sept. 22 from 8:00 – 9:30 a.m. PST.
