First wheat straw-based pulp mill to be built near Regina

Red Leaf Pulp, developer of a proprietary wheat straw-based pulp mill, has announced the company will locate its initial facility on the west side of the city of Regina, Sask.

The initial plant will have the capacity to produce approximately 182,000 tonnes of market pulp annually from waste wheat straw collected and aggregated from local producers, says the company.

The plant is expected to represent a $250 million direct investment in the local community, creating 110 permanent full-time jobs upon completion, and 250 jobs during construction.

“Red Leaf is delighted to be locating in Regina and we look forward to working with the community, local businesses and the region’s growers. Our project provides an opportunity to enhance the utilization of existing resources and diversify revenue sources in the ag-industry while creating a lower carbon future,” says Martin Pudlas, CEO of Red Leaf Pulp. “We want to thank communities across Saskatchewan for their support, interest and assistance during the location evaluation process. Ultimately Regina’s proximity to major infrastructure and a significant workforce were key considerations in our choice for the initial plant site.”

Construction is set to start on the $350 million facility in early 2022.
