Why ICE?

Our ICE projects aim to do better for our environment by providing a solution to dramatically increase mitigation of dead tree decomposition emissions, reforestation and replanting opportunities in an economically viable and sustainable way.

better equipment

ICE can recycle up to one million metric tonnes of ‘non-merchantable’ dead or waste fibre.

standing dead timber

ICE remediates and reforests dead non-merchantable timber.

sawmill waste

15 years old sawmill waste can still be recycled with ICE tech.

burn in place method

ICE recycling is a better solution than burn-in-place.

residual waste

Residual waste fiber can be recycled into ICE biofuel.

dedicated transportation

ICE has dedicated rail sidings with access to Pacific Coast ports

Better solutions to mitigate current forestry emissions

Each ICE Waste Fibre Recycling Plant will recycle up to one million metric tonnes of currently ‘non-merchantable’ dead or waste fibre, into approximately half a million metric tonnes of high value biofuel annually. This will mitigate over 2 million metric tonnes of Greenhouse Gases (GHG) per annum in the forestry setting alone each year.

Better for communities, wildlife, and forestry

ICE provides the ability to remediate wildfire-damaged stands following natural disasters and allows for land, ‘blocked’ by standing dead timber, unproductive and inhospitable to flora and fauna, to be brought back into a productive, healthy state.

Better recycling, remediation and reforestation options from slash blocked timberlands; rather than burning in place

We provide the at-scale solution to dramatically increase reforestation and replanting opportunities. ICE allows forestry professionals to further improve on their already world-leading environmental practices in forest operations.

Better LCA performance

ICE has higher energy density, far exceeding existing large-scale biomass fuels in Gigajoules per metric tonne, meaning more energy can be accommodated in any given volume of truck, rail car or ship.

Better training opportunities for rural communities and indigenous people

ICE plans for the long term, not only in our operations, but with people. Full-time jobs created at a single ICE Plant will number over 100, with secondary opportunities prioritised to benefit our indigenous and community stakeholders.

A meaningful proportion of any profits from our ESG business activities are budgeted for scholarships and university level education of our Indigenous team members

Better utility asset life extension strategy

ICE can be used in place of White Pellet in existing biomass plants, but it can also be used as a direct drop-in replacement fuel when decarbonising coal-fired energy generators by replacing coal in existing utilities, not requiring retrofit or conversion at point of use at any ratio.

Better and more varied storage options for our fuel

ICE, like all ‘Black Pellets’, when pelletised, is hydrophobic, meaning there is no need for expensive weather-proof storage facilities, climate control or packaging or handling methods.

Better safety characteristics than lesser biofuels

ICE when pelletised hardly dusts in transit, handling, storage or use and is thus safer, cleaner, and simpler to handle and utilise than alternatives. This means ICE suffers less losses during storage and logistics and can safely be transported in a wider variety of less costly formats.
