RED DEER ADVOCATE: Central Alberta to be home of North America’s first straw-based MDF Plant

Great Plains MDF has picked Kneehill County as the home of its first North American straw-based MDF plant.

The site is in Equity, between Three Hills and Trochu, and the three-quarter sections of land will be home to the proposed facility, as well as the storage of wheat straw. A release states it will bring hundreds of jobs to the local economy and will be the largest such facility in the world.
