Bio‑Environmental Engineering Centre
The Bio-Environmental Engineering Centre, called by its acronym BEEC, is a research and demonstration site operated jointly by the Faculty of Agriculture’s Engineering Department and Dalhousie University’s Department of Biological Engineering. Established in 1992, BEEC is located at AgriTech Park in Bible Hill, just a few kilometers from the Agricultural Campus.
BEEC is a state-of-the-art environmental research and development complex dedicated to working with and in support of the Atlantic Canada agri-food industry.
Over the past few years, through a direct partnership agreement with the Resource Stewardship Division of the Nova Scotia Department of Agriculture, BEEC has evolved into one of the leading adaptive environmental research facilities in Canada. Research scientists from the Faculty of Agriculture and other units at Dalhousie University, along with several other research agencies, use the resources available at BEEC to support their collective research programs.
