Bioenergy is one of the activities in which Valle del Cauca has been positioning itself for the development of BioBusiness. The geographic Valle region of the Cauca River is a leader in bioethanol production and co-generation of national electric power from biomass, due to the great input the sugar industry has had. Likewise, little by little the region has started to take advantage of animal residues from poultry and pork industries for the generation of biofuels such as biogas.     

Research centers like the International Center for Tropical Agriculture –CIAT (*by its acronym in Spanish), the most important research center in the Country, CENICANA, Corpoica, among others, and the several innovation groups from universities and companies settled in the region, have contributed for Valle del Cauca to serve as a priceless asset due its experience in the development and establishment of companies interested in BioBusiness. Additionally, Valle del Cauca will have the first Agro- industrial, Scientific and Technological Park of the Country: Bio Pacífico Park.
