A $350-million wheat straw pulp mill slated for Regina will potentially be able to produce low carbon-intensity biofuels as a byproduct. Construction of the new facility is to begin next year.

The plant is expected to be able to produce about 182,000 tonnes of market pulp each year from locally collected and aggregated waste wheat straw.

Red Leaf Pulp says its plant could create about 110 permanent full-time jobs while the construction process could employ about 250 people.
