Federated Co-operatives Limited is hosting a public open house today.
FCL is looking for feedback on the Integrated Agriculture Complex in Regina.
The site which is north and east of the Co-op Refinery Complex will include a renewable diesel plant which will be fully owned by FCL, and a canola crush plant which is a joint venture partnership between FCL and AGT Foods.
The canola crush plant is expected to process 1.1 million tonnes annually. Using locally grown products, it will supply ~50 per cent of the feedstock needed to produce 15,000 barrels-per-day of FCL manufactured renewable diesel.
FCL CEO Heather Ryan, says as we transition to a low-carbon economy and expand the production of plant-based fuels, it’s imperative that we engage in credible and meaningful public consultation and communicate directly with the people and businesses that neighbour these proposed facilities.
Representatives from FCL will be on site to share information, answer questions, and gain a better understanding of public priorities and concerns.
Today's open house runs from 12 til 8 at the Turvey Centre.
