CRIBE giving money to LU

The Centre for Research and Innovation in the Bio-Economy is handing out more money.  CRIBE dolled out 3 million dollars to help build a partnership between Lakehead University and a Chatham company.  G2 BioChem Spokesperson Bob Benson says a portion of the funds will go towards the construction of an ethanol plant in Chatham which LU researchers will have access to.  CRIBE is also giving 150 thousand dollars to LU for a separate project.  MPP Bill Mauro says after 2 years of work CRIBE is finally ready to start announcing projects.
