Innovation in Alberta's Bio Sectors
Innovation in biology is changing how the agriculture and forest can deliver solutions for society's pressing issues in the areas of environment, health, food and the need for economic development. The new biological carbon model ushers in the advent of the 21st century with the same potential as the hydrocarbon model at the advent of the 20th century. The opportunity for Alberta's agriculture, food and forest industries is that there are already specialists in the business of supplying biological carbon to the world in such forms as grains, cereals, lumber and paper.
Alberta continues to be an attractive research and commercialization partner to other organizations in the global agriculture, food and forestry sectors. Alberta has a tremendous foundation of industry sophistication, research infrastructure and remarkable scientists and entrepreneurs. Alberta can contribute to global challenges through crops with unique traits that deliver human health benefits, high-value wood products, and unique and delicious low-sodium meat products as only a limited set of examples in a limitless universe of possibilities.
