Saskatchewan-based bioenergy company, Prairie Clean Energy (PCE), welcomed representatives from Japan’s largest renewable energy developer – RENOVA Inc. – to Regina last week for important talks.

PCE is a Saskatchewan start-up success story that buys flax straw from prairie producers, pelletizes it using its proprietary process, and transforms it into renewable and sustainable biomass fuel to sell to customers around the world. The meetings with RENOVA Inc. highlight the global interest in PCE’s momentum in the bioenergy space, and demonstrate the high-level of demand for a fully renewable and sustainable biomass fuel source like flax straw.

Prairie Clean Energy President and CEO, Mark Cooper said, “It was a pleasure to meet in-person and strengthen our relationship with RENOVA after their enthusiasm for our product brought them to Regina…in the middle of winter no less. Our pelletized flax product, which provides customers like RENOVA with a clean and environmentally responsible fuel source, continues to garner interest around the globe.”

PCE’s executive team introduced RENOVA to representatives from the University of Regina Clean Energy Technology Research Institute, Invest in Canada, South Saskatchewan Ready, the city of Melville and more. “The interest in what we’re creating here in Saskatchewan is growing in Asia, Europe, and across the world. The bioenergy shift happening globally is positioning Saskatchewan to be a world leader in this space,” comments Cooper.

The companies discussed the potential for PCE’s fully sustainable and renewable flax biomass fuel product to supply RENOVA’s power plants as well as other opportunities for the Japan-based company in the Saskatchewan bioenergy sector.
