Biocomposites and Biomaterials

Forest-based biocomposites and biomaterials are a significant and emerging area of Ontario’s forest bio-economy. One of Nextfor’s key objectives is the commercialization of investments in these materials and technologies.

A promising area for forest-based, low-carbon solutions. 

We are working to identify the challenges and opportunities for bringing forest-based biocomposites and biomaterials to market in Ontario.


Nextfor launched a series of Innovation Forums in biocomposites and biomaterials.


In collaboration with the Fraunhofer Innovation Platform for Composites Research at Western University, Nextfor created an opportunity roadmap for the biocomposites and biomaterials market in Ontario.

Nextfor also launched the Next-Generation Forest-Based Biomaterials funding challenge. 


Stay tuned for project announcements and updates!
