Manitoba Bioeconomy Atlas
The Manitoba Bioeconomy Atlas demonstrates the economic and ecological value of common wetland plants as a marketable feedstock for biomass energy—all with the goal of creating a healthier Lake Winnipeg basin and developing a Manitoba bioeconomy.
The Manitoba Bioeconomy Atlas realizes a web-based spatial inventory of conventional and unconventional biomass sources; using a custom model to determine optimal sites for biomass refineries and thermal facilities; and provide a tool to support stakeholder decisions, markets and policies in the production of Manitoba’s bioeconomy.
If you are a biomass producer, it can help you work out how much biomass you have and how much it is worth.
If you are a biomass consumer, it can help you source biomass, calculate how much it costs and learn why using biomass is the environmentally friendly and economic choice.
Come and explore the Manitoba Bioeconomy Atlas and learn the landscape of Manitoba’s biomass resources and how this province can develop a sustainable economy for the 21st century.
Canada Should Copy Europe When It Comes to the Bioeconomy
The recently announced EU Bioeconomy Strategy continues that continent’s legacy of advancing biological solutions to environmental questions and strategically highlights the economic benefits of the approach with a strong focus on jobs, growth and investment.

Floating Treatment Wetlands
Floating treatment wetlands are little miracles that allow aquatic plants to grow in water that is typically too deep for them. The unique ecosystem that develops creates the potential to capture nutrients and transform common pollutants that would otherwise plague and harm our lakes into harmless by-products.
