Hosted in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan from September 9-11, the 2018 Canadian Lipid and Bioresource Conference (CLBC) brings together international delegates from academia, government, and industry to discuss current research in lipid and bioresource research as well as industrial processing and production. With many researchers from the University of Saskatchewan attending and presenting their own research, the CLBC presents a world of opportunity for anyone looking to network, demonstrate innovation, stimulate business opportunities and vie for scientific collaborations.
Having participated in the conference in previous years, POS continues to support the CLBC as a conference Gold sponsor, and will be offering attendees an exclusive chance to tour the POS facility on the first day of the conference’s opening events. POS’s Algarithm business unit is also supporting the conference as a Silver sponsor, and POS’s own Suneru Perera and Dr. Thushan Withana-Gamage are on the committee that organized this year’s conference.
Dr. Withana-Gamage will be chairing what is expected to be an exciting and well-attended session on “New Trends and Emerging Technologies in Lipids and Cannabis”. Promoted as a “Hot Topic” of the 2018 CLBC, Withana-Gamage’s session will highlight new and innovative advances in oil extraction and processing from a variety of sources, and will also address innovations, strategies, technologies, and developments in cannabis and hemp production. POS’s President of Intellectual Capital Generation, Dr. Rick Green, will also be delivering a “New Trends and Emerging Technologies in Food Ingredients” presentation where, in addition to talking about incremental advancements in proteins and adapting existing technology for new processing methods, he will discuss micro-capsulation technology and POS’s innovative capabilities in a changing environment.
“Consumer demand is changing,” says Green. “This change is creating new opportunities and advances for natural ingredients and sustainable processing methods” According to Green, the Agri-Food industry will be providing ingredients and foods that are consumed for health and wellness in addition to nutritional benefits. As well, many of the sustainable crops for providing these new ingredients are already being produced in Canada. Rick is especially eager to talk about the potential impact in Canada, as according to Green, “many new technologies are being commercialized by Canadian companies which will enable Canada to become a leader in new innovation.”
POS was founded to ensure brilliant ideas and pioneering products can benefit the world and create a future that is well, and we are thrilled to be part of the CLBC 2018 and work with like-minded organizations, governing bodies and some of the most influential people in the industry to discuss trends, analyze research, and share our innovations.
