Smart Education in Canada:BioAmber Opens New Plant in Sarnia Ontario Supporting Next Generation Manufacturers

Today Deputy Premier Deb Matthews celebrated the official opening of Ontario's newest next generation manufacturing facility in Sarnia.

BioAmber, a Montreal-based chemicals company, along with partner Mitsui, officially opened the world's largest bio-succinic acid manufacturing facility in the heart of the Sarnia-Lambton chemistry cluster. The $141.5 million plant will produce sustainable chemicals from agricultural feedstock that can be used in a variety of everyday products including plastics, food additives and personal care products. Currently, the plant has created 60 high value jobs.

The province supported the plant with a $15 million loan through the Strategic Jobs and Investment Fund. The new plant is an anchor for the Sarnia-Lambton chemistry cluster and will raise the profile of Ontario as a world leader in the biochemical sector.

Ensuring Ontario is a world leader in next generation manufacturing is part of the government's plan to build Ontario up. The four-part plan includes investing in people's talents and skills, making the largest investment in public infrastructure in Ontario's history, creating a dynamic, innovative environment where business thrives, and building a secure retirement savings plan.

The Colleges in Canada are at par with the best known Colleges in the world, in terms of the educational programs offered and the facilities provided to the students " , says Mr. Deepak, Education Manager, Career XL Services..
