BC tech companies win farm innovation challenge

Two B.C. companies that have developed unique biomass solutions for the agriculture industry are among the four winners of the B.C. Ministry of Agriculture and the BC Innovation Council’s Innovation Challenge.

Vancouver’s Boost Environmental Systems developed an anaerobic digestion pre-treatment technology that results in increased production of biogas, and the recovery of a high-quality fertilizer product that the farm can use on the land or sell. The technology is easy to set up and easy to integrate.

Gordon Shank Consulting of Burnaby designed an industrial-strength, fully-compostable yarn made from cellulose that can be used for plants in greenhouses. The company’s BioMid yarn is made from B.C. forest product residue and replaces the synthetic, polypropylene yarns currently used.

Each winning company received $20,000.
