Government and industry to intersect at WPAC Asian Wood Pellet Conference

For wood pellet customers in Asia and around the globe, and for pellet producers in Canada, it’s critical to understand different countries’ policies and their impact on the industry. That’s why it’s on the agenda for the WPAC Asian Wood Pellet Conference on February 17 at 9:00 a.m. Japan Standard Time (February 16 at 7:00 p.m. EST).

Tracy Reynolds, Minister (Commercial) and Senior Trade Commissioner at the Embassy of Canada to Japan, and Katrine Conroy, B.C. Minister of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development, will provide welcoming remarks.

Peter Armstrong and Maya Ito, partners at the Japanese law firm Nishimura & Asahi, will provide an overview of government legislation and policy in Japan and their impacts on biomass. Meanwhile, Takanobu Aikawa, Ph.D., a senior researcher at Japan’s Renewable Energy Institute, will speak to attendees about the biomass and greenhouse gas requirements that the Japanese government is currently developing.

And George Chow, B.C. Minister of State for Trade, will discuss the importance of trading partnerships in tackling climate change.

You don’t want to miss the opportunity to hear from these and other speakers about the opportunities available for energizing Asia with sustainable, low-carbon biomass!
