Kochi Prefecture explores Biomass energy and eco-tourism in Toronto

Japan’s Kochi Prefecture recently sent a 23-member mission on an 8-day study trip to Canada to learn about biomass energy and environmentally friendly tourism. In Toronto the group met CEO David Layzell of BIOCAP, a Canadian organization promoting use of biomass fuels. It also visited BIOX Corporation near Lake Ontario, a U of T spinoff that makes biodiesel fuel from soybeans, canola, and restaurant and slaughterhouse waste.
