Sask Polytech’s SLICE partners with Prairie Clean Energy on biomass projects

Saskatchewan Polytechnic’s Sustainability-Led Integrated Centres of Excellence (SLICE) is partnering with Prairie Clean Energy to research the use of agricultural waste to generate low-carbon bioheat. The collaboration will establish a living lab at a Sask Polytech agriculture field site near Moose Jaw that will test the potential of using biomass to heat buildings. Sask Polytech will offer four free micro-credentials in partnership with Quick Train Canada and Canadian Colleges for a Resilient Recovery that focus on biomass production, handling, storage, and supply chain distribution. As part of this partnership, Sask Polytech will also develop an online GIS platform to trace and track Saskatchewan’s flax straw suppliers and monitor biomass product sustainability.
