Effective October 1, 2017, the government of Alberta extended its Can.$63 million (U.S.$50.6 million) Bioenergy Producer Program (BPP) for two and a half years. The program will run from October 1, 2017 to March 31, 2020, and provide funding for the production of electricity and liquid biofuels. Products supported under the BPP include liquid biofuels, electricity generated by a producer of biogas from a farm-based anaerobic digester, and generation of electricity by combustion and gasification of woody biomass in a stand-alone facility by a market participant in Alberta’s interconnected electric system.
