In 2021, Nextfor launched a series of “Forest-Based Biocomposite” Forums to bring industry experts and innovators together to identify the challenges and opportunities for bringing forest-based biocomposites and bioplastics to market in Ontario.

Over the last year, we have been working with the Fraunhofer Innovation Platform for Composites Research at Western University to understand the identified challenges and opportunities and to create an opportunity roadmap for the province.
