Additional Project Support and Leadership

BRAV-C is a New Generation Cooperative located in Flagstaff County, Alberta, approximately 150 km south east of Edmonton. The district has nearly 1,000,000 acres of crop land, and over 600,000 acres of

crop are seeded annually in Flagstaff County.  The region is well known for its growing ability, and high yield crop production.  The district has traditionally based most production in wheat, canola, barley, peas, and oats. BRAV-C plans to further leverage regional crop growing expertise by introducing additional value added, agri-business opportunities to the region.  This investment will benefit both farmers and regional investors interested in promoting local business growth and success.

NovaGreen has negotiated a preferred supplier agreement with BRAV-C for delivery and logistical coordination of the straw required to meet both Demonstration and Commercial production biomass volumes . Delivery Rights Agreements with BRAV-C members will enable NovaGreen to ensure adequate biomass to meet annual production requirements.

The BRAV-C arrangement provides an assured market and value for committed amounts of straw. Farmers know in advance the revenue associated with straw, and also get an additional premium to market via this contractual arrangement.

 BRAV-C is also an equity investor in the NovaGreen biorefinery. By providing the straw feedstock product to the refinery, BRAV-C straw suppliers also contribute to the overall success and profitability of the project. As many suppliers are also be BRAV-C investors, they will be contributing to their own investment success via supply of feedstock to the biorefining project.

Initial delivery contracts have been developed for wheat, barley, and flax straw. BRAV-C has also taken a leadership position in the development of the specialty crop ‘Jerusalem Artichoke’, which produces Inulin.
