The Cellulosic Sugar Producers' Co-operative is looking to recruit members among Huron County corn and wheat producers, whose crop waste can be converted into sugar.

Demonstrations using equipment to harvest the excess biomass were held on farms in Warwick and Bothwell in November, and the Co-operative is actively recruiting supplier members.

A processing plant is planned by the co-operative and Comet Biorefining, at a location to be announced.

The CSPC meeting will be held at Hill and Hill Farms on Mill Road in Varna, Friday from 1:30pm till 3pm.
