Group plant in Drayton Valley has begun its initial phase of operation, making
biocomposite fibre mats for the automotive industry.

According to the report in the Edmonton Journal the Biocomposities
Group, which is a division of Tekle Technical Services (TTS) of Edmonton, is
using wood waste in the construction of mats that will be used in trim and door
panels. In Europe, both Mercedes and Audi are using this material to save
weight in its automobiles.

Dan Madlung, a former manager for forest products
manufacturer Canfor, is leading the Biocomposites Group. Some of the equipment
being used in the manufacturing of the car parts comes from Canfor’s shuttered
mill in Vancouver. The company also received a $4.5 million grant from the
Forest Industry Transformation (FIT) Program.
