11.04.2018Bioindustrial Innovation Canada begins COMM SCI project in Eastern Ontario
Bioindustrial Innovation Canada (BIC) is a not-for-profit organization based in Sarnia, Ontario. Its goal is to help Ontario and Canada become globally recognized leaders in the field of sustainable technologies. In 2016, BIC established The Centre for Commercialization of Sustainable Chemistry Innovation (COMM SCI) initiative program, which acts as a hub for the commercialization of sustainable chemistry and bio-based innovation. COMM SCI supports BIC’s mission to provide critical strategic investment, advice and services to business developers of clean, green and sustainable technologies.

BIC believes that there are significant opportunities to execute COMM SCI projects in Eastern Ontario that can leverage the existing opportunities and remove barriers to commercialization. This will lead to new businesses, such as bio-based start-ups and sustainable chemistry companies which can bring innovation to full commercialization. In order to effectively develop and manage perspective COMM SCI projects in Eastern Ontario, BIC needed resources in the region.

As a result, Sandy Marshall, Executive Director of BIC, welcomes Joe Hendriks to its management team as a COMM SCI Project Manager.
