THE PRAIRIE CLEAN ENERGY STORY
Prairie Clean Energy was born three years ago out of the pursuit for an environmentally sustainable solution to agricultural waste. After years of seeing acres of flax straw being burned near his home in rural Saskatchewan, founder Trevor Thomas knew he had discovered a solution to the global biomass shortage – one that also provided farmers with an economical and environmentally-conscious way to use flax waste.
After researching the potential of flax straw as a fuel source, Trevor established Prairie Clean Energy to bridge the gap between flax farmers and those seeking clean, reliable biomass fuel. Since then, Prairie Clean Energy has grown into a fully realized biomass business, and has built partnerships with farmers and organizations across Canada to deliver high-quality biomass fuel to customers across the world.
At PCE we invest in our communities and power the world as the global leader in providing sustainable and clean prairie-based biomass fuel.
PCE wants to see Canada’s Prairies Sustainably Power the Future. We believe that through our work we can help our home province, and Western Canada, position itself as a global clean energy leader.
PCE is working to Create and Lead the Biomass Industry on the Canadian Prairies. As a first-mover in this marketplace, we are creating a whole new market. We can and will lead the industry.
Saskatchewan: A global leader in flax production
Canada is the world’s largest producer of flax, and most of Canada’s flax is grown in Saskatchewan.
Saskatchewan is one of Canada’s three prairie provinces, bordered by Alberta to the west and Manitoba to the east. Known as the “breadbasket of Canada,” the province is characterized by its wide, flat plains and thriving agricultural industry.
PCE’s first processing site will be located outside of Regina, Saskatchewan in the heart of the Canadian Prairies – a hub for global flax production.
We have ready access to two national rail lines, a transcontinental highway, and a network of other major highways. Canada is a stable, democratic country with reliable and fair regulations.
SECURE BIOMASS FUEL SOURCE
Saskatchewan producers account for almost a third of all global flax production, and the province is located between two other agricultural prairie provinces. Flax straw is 100% renewable.
Our team is the only flax buyer in Saskatchewan registered with SaskFlax, the Saskatchewan Flax Development Commission, and we have good working relationships with farmers across the province. This allows us to provide clients with reliable delivery schedules.
