Agriculture

Our initial commercial project will engage partnership with ​​Western Canadian grain farmers. They will be our source for starting biomass feedstock (straw) to fuel our first commercial project.

Annual and year-to-year feedstock assurance is mission critical. Our feedstock assurance model is built on availability of agricultural biomass on a 'one-in-four' basis. We assume that growers will return grain straw back to their fields three years out of four. We would utilize the other year's straw. 

While this sounds potentially limiting, biomass availability models confirm that not only is this approach possible, it will also enable commercial feedstock requirements to be met within an 80 kilometer radius of commercial facility location, even with a very large requirement over time.


Our approach enables the following project benefits: 

  • Minimal transportation costs
  • Simplified logistics and feedstock coordination
  • Optimized environmental impact. We aim for a minimal carbon footprint, and avoiding long haul transport contributes to this approach
  • Community integration. We aim to integrate into the fabric of the region we locate in.
  • Regional economic benefit. The 'spinoff' multiplier impact of our facility will be realized via this approach.  


MODEL REPLICATION

The model can be replicated in multiple geographies. And, combined with our flexible refining technology, the approach can leverage a wide variety of agricultural and forestry based feedstock sources.
