Dear friends of Biorenewables Cafe,

We hope everyone had a great summer!

Yes, Biorenewables Cafe is now back in full speed, and we are delighted to host Professor Gary Bull, the Professor of Forest Economics and Forest Policy at the University of British Columbia for our first Cafe after a long summer break.

Gary has kindly agreed to talk about  “Carbon Policy in British Columbia: Background, Update, and Analysis” to give us an overview about this important policy and its impact to the province. An informal discussion will follow the talk.


We will host the Cafe on Thursday, September 19, 2013 at 6:30 pm at the Railway Club, 579 Dunsmuir Street, Vancouver.
