Jan 21: Biorenewables Cafe – earlier start time

Biorenewables Café is inviting Chris Bush, the President of Catalyst Agri-Innovation Society, to lead a friendly, informal discussion on sustainable agriculture through biorefineries.

When:  January 21, 5:30 pm (previously 6:30 pm)
Where: Railway Club, 579 Dunsmuir St, Vancouver

A sustainability pioneer from Abbotsford, Chris took the first anaerobic digester for agriculture in British Columbia from concept, through construction to operation.  It became the first in North America to deliver renewable natural gas from a farm to a utility grid.

Catalyst Agri-Innovation has designed a four-product system that starts with dairy and poultry manure, and produces biogas, ethanol, animal feed, and reusable water – all with zero waste.

From the beginning it was understood that anaerobic digestion is only one piece of the solution, and Chris continues his work with a proposal for the BC Centre for BioResource Innovation.
