Centre for Research and Innovation in the Bio-Economy (CRIBE)

Since 2009, the Centre for Research and Innovation in the Bio-Economy (CRIBE) has been the leading forest-based bio-economy driver in Ontario. CRIBE drives the development of competitive and sustainable bio-economy industries with Ontario, moving beyond the traditional markets of newsprint, pulp and lumber. These industries transform renewable forest resources into novel new products, materials and fuels – enabling the development of a profitable and sustainable biomass-based economy.

CRIBE partners closely with other relevant organizations to provide financial support for the commercialization of research and innovation findings while transferring new technologies to industry in Ontario, Canada and globally. As a result, CRIBE facilitates the creation of new products, new processes, new businesses, new jobs and new wealth for Ontario’s forest dependent communities.
