Red Leaf Pulp will be the first operating entity to identify, develop, construct and operate an alternative fibre plant in Canada.
Construction is scheduled to begin in Q2 2024 and full operations will commence in Q1 2026
The plant will convert wheat straw into market pulp and co-products.
The initial facility is anticipated to utilize approximately 370,000 tonnes of wheat straw to produce 200,000 tonnes of pulp and 220,000 tonnes of co-product per year.
The initial facility in Regina SK will employ 130+ direct jobs and bring $1.19 Billion in economic benefits during the first 10 years of operations.
As the process requires low energy and water use, production costs are significantly lower than those of existing wood fiber mills (between 50-60% of the cost).
