The Bio-Thermo-Chemical Processing team was formed in April 2017 as an amalgamation of two previous InnoTech Alberta teams, Bio-Processing and Thermochemical Processing.
The Bio-Processing team has a background in process design, automation and system development – specializing in biological based systems. Let our overarching skill sets in the mechanical, chemical, biological and automation fields be of assistance to you. Whether you need a process scaled or optimized, or a specialized piece of equipment designed and built, we can assist you.
We have an extensive background in waste and waste water characterization and treatment, through biological (anaerobic and aerobic) and chemical/mechanical methods. Our experience with waste treatment ranges from food and beverage production residuals to landfill emissions.
Under our primary program (Biogas Innovation) we increase the value of low-value or waste materials through biogas generation. Learn more.

The former Thermo-Chemical Processing (TCP) team is a research and technology development team located in Vegreville, Alberta. TCP specializes in biomass conversion technologies for heat generation and distributed heating systems, cogeneration of heat and electrical power, production of biochar and advanced carbons, bio-chemicals, soil amendments and fertilizers. Agglomeration of organic and inorganic mixtures is a specialty including extrusion pelletizing, spheroids, briquettes, and wafer products. The team has research labs ranging from lab, bench and pilot scale to demonstration scale equipment and has developed several patents with more currently being developed. TCP serves small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and large industrial clients in the forestry, food and agriculture, municipal and bioeconomy sectors and collaborates closely with government partners, post-secondary institutions and other research organizations.
