Red Leaf Pulp announced that it will be hosting a virtual open house event on Jan. 20 at 7:00 p.m. CST to update the public regarding the progress of its wheat straw-based pulp mill project.
The company has secured properties on the west side of the city of Regina, within the regional municipality of Sherwood. The construction of the mill is set to commence within the next 12 months.
Red Leaf’s innovative pulp mill will have the capacity to produce approximately 182,000 tonnes of market pulp annually from wheat straw collected and aggregated from local producers. This represents a $350+ million direct investment in the local community and is expected to create 130 permanent full-time jobs and 250 jobs during construction.
During the open house, representatives from Red Leaf Pulp wish to share project information, provide an opportunity to discuss the public’s interests and address questions about the project. This event is open to the public.
A link to pre-register for the event can be found on Red Leaf’s website. After registering, a confirmation email will be sent containing a link to add the event to the calendar and information about joining the webinar.
A recording of the event will be available on the company’s website later for those who are unable to attend.
