Red Leaf Selects Regina for Wheat Straw Pulp Mill

First-of-its-kind plant will have capacity to produce 182,000 tonnes of market pulp annually in early 2022


Red Leaf Pulp Ltd., developer of a proprietary wheat straw-based pulp mill, announced it will locate its initial facility in Regina, SK.

The company has secured properties on the west side of Regina and will commence construction of the $350 million facility in early 2022.

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.

This represents a $350 million direct investment in the local community and is expected to create 110 permanent full-time jobs, and 250 jobs during construction.

"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. "Regina's proximity to major infrastructure and a significant workforce were key considerations in our choice for the initial plant site."
