BRINGING SUSTAINABILITY HOME
Technology initially developed in Alberta over the past decade has been successfully commercialized over in Southeast Asia, it’s well past time to bring it back to Alberta where it can benefit Alberta Farmers, Workers, Investors and Consumers.
A NEW OUTLOOK
As the world seeks lower carbon footprint solutions, agricultural Biomass is rapidly becoming the smart choice. Alberta BioBord is bringing several proprietary straw based products to market, starting with a unique blend of fibres that lets us produce the highest quality fuel pellets suitable for either residential or industrial usage. We will follow that 300,000 MT per year Pellet Plant with a large 430 Million square foot ¾” equivalent straw based Medium Density Fiberboard factory. In total, we will utilize over 1.2 Million Metric Tonnes per year of residual straws in place of wood. Between now and 2030, our products will help Alberta reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by well over 20 MILLION Metric Tonnes. Our annual net negative 2.4Mt GHG footprint will provide the equivalent of removing over 518,000 vehicles off our roads EVERY single year!
A CLEAR FUTURE
A HIGH DEMAND
Traditional waste streams of wood chips & sawdust for production of engineered wood products such as OSB, Particle Board & Medium Density Fibreboard have suddenly been adopted as a source for the production of Wood Pellet Fuels, in demand globally to replace coal in Electricity Generation. Canada’s wood pellet market is expected to exceed 4M Metric Tonnes in 2020, COVID-19 hasn’t slowed demand! Forests everywhere are shrinking with the added pressure of being vital to maintain healthy ecosystems for the carbon sink benefits. The demand for wood fibres for pellets is growing globally at over 12%/Yr, causing MDF manufacturers both higher fibre input costs and forcing them to start using whole trees. 75% of Canada’s pellets are exported! The handling & chipping costs when having to use whole trees adds to the overall input costs, leaving existing wood based MDF producers having no choice but to raise the prices of all MDF products to consumers. It takes ~40 years to grow mature trees in Canada.
