CRIBE and GreenCore Composites to Develop New Products from Wood Fibre

august 6 2012

The Centre for Research and Innovation in the Bio-Economy (CRIBE) is partnering with GreenCore Composites to develop a new green technology process that will allow wood fibre to be used in a number of new products for the packaging and building applications, such as pallets and various containers. CRIBE is providing $320,000 to GreenCore Composites for this important project that will position GreenCore as the market leader in natural fibre composites and Ontario as a leader in creating a more sustainable and greener economy.

This new mixing process will be added to GreenCore's existing NCell technology allowing GreenCore to widen the type of products in which glass fibre and other compounds such as plastics can be replaced with wood fibre composite materials.

This wood fibre composite has been successfully piloted in many applications, from automotive parts, to rigid containers, furniture, and industrial products. The benefits include enhanced sustainability, reduced energy costs and lower carbon emissions. This technology is expected to grow GreenCore's workforce from its current level of 6 employees to 40-45 by 2016.
