Canadian Rockies Hemp Corporation Closes Financing to Complete Build-Out of North America’s Largest Industrial Hemp Processing Facility

Canadian Rockies Hemp Corporation Logo (CNW Group/Canadian Rockies Hemp Corporation)

On February 2, 2021 Canadian Rockies Hemp Corporation (CRHC), an Alberta-based agribusiness that focuses on processing hemp at scale for industrial use outputs, has announced the closing of a CAD $18 million equity and debt financing led by Merida Capital Holdings, a private equity firm targeting fundamental growth drivers which accelerate the rapid development of the cannabis and hemp industries. The company will use the proceeds to complete construction of their Bruderheim biorefinery, the first of several planned across Western Canada.

CRHC provides sustainable, consistent supply of processed hemp to manufacturing facilities globally for numerous product outputs including textiles, pulp and paper, animal bedding, rope and twine, building and insulation materials, composites and automobile components. The Company, in conjunction with its local farming partners, leverages 20 million acres of Northern Alberta farmland within a 500 kilometer radius, which offers potentially the best growing conditions in the world for hemp fibre, given the long summer days and relative lack of humidity. 

CRHC has been in operations since 2016. Upon completion of the 60,000 square feet Bruderheim processing facility this summer, the Company’s proprietary harvesting equipment, decortication lines and degumming technology will have the ability to process up to 50,000 tons of fibre and 110,000 tons of hurd per year. The facility is primely located to optimize transportation access for global logistics. CRHC customers span Canada, the United States, Italy, Australia, New Zealand and China. The Company will ultimately have 60+ employees on staff to support Bruderheimoperations. 

Environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) principles are at the core of CRHC’s business. The Company is working closely with local farmers, manufacturers, academic institutions and provincial government bodies to develop a Hemp CO2 sequestration tax credit program. The hemp plant has many uses and benefits, including the ability to remove up to 35 percent of its total mass in CO2 from the atmosphere. The resulting tax credits will be purchased by many local industries, most notably the oil and gas segment, resulting in incremental revenues to the company and local farmers.

Aaron Barr, CRHC CEO and certified Horticultural Specialist says, “Our Company is a cumulation of 18 years of Alberta innovation, entrepreneurship and farming that supports our success within raw material processing, where there is a need to diversify beyond oil and gas. With the help of Merida Capital Holdings, we were able to stress test our Company model, proactively prevent risks and align with legal regulations, setting us up for success heading into 2021.”

Barr leads with the support of Mina Mishrikey, Partner at Merida Capital Holdings. “The Industrial Hemp Industry is just being developed in North America, and the opportunity is massive, with demand from various industries across the globe,” says Mishrikey. “Today, there are many holes in the North American value-chain, in particular the processing of raw materials. We feel that CRHC is a best-in-class operator which has thoughtfully strategized their approach to provide a sustainable, consistent supply of processed hemp to manufacturing facilities worldwide.”

How growing global electric car sales could be a boon for Alberta

Lithium used in batteries found in brine already pumped by oil operations

Lithium, a key component in electric vehicle batteries, can be found in brine pumped during the petroleum extraction process. (The Associated Press)

It may sound paradoxical, but electric cars could soon be an economic driver for oil-rich Alberta.

Global sales of electric vehicles grew by 43 per cent in 2020, according to numbers recently released by sales database EV Volumes. A key component of their batteries is lithium, a mineral found in Alberta — if you know where to look.

“There’s a lot of opportunities for lithium in Alberta,” said Roy Eccles, a senior consultant with Apex Geoscience in Edmonton, in an interview with CBC’s Radio Active.

Eccles says exploration in the last decade by companies of the Devonian-aged oil and gas reservoirs — between 1,600 and 3,330 metres below the surface — has confirmed the accompanying salt-water brine is enriched with lithium.

The Leduc Formation, the source of Alberta’s first big oil boom, is also a rich lithium deposit. There are about 10.6 million tonnes of lithium carbonate equivalent identified in the province, according to the Canadian Lithium Association, and the potential could be even higher.

London-based commodity researcher and market consultant Roskill released an August report that notes demand will grow for the mineral at least until 2030. 

Eccles says current major lithium extraction areas in arid climates near the equator use evaporation pods that can take months to years and leave a large environmental footprint. 

That’s not possible in Canada’s climate, he said. Instead, companies are attempting to develop new technology that will rapidly extract lithium from the brine.

Lithium is plentiful in Alberta, and companies are hoping to capitalize on growing demand for lithium batteries by finding an easier and greener way to extract the light metal. (CBC)

Existing infrastructure 

The Alberta advantage is that it can use already existing oil operations and technologies.

“It’s essentially using infrastructure that’s already in place,” Eccles said, adding that petroleum production is measured in short timelines, pumping up hydrocarbons before reinjecting the brine back underground.

There is also an environmental feature to the process, according to University of Alberta associate professor of earth sciences Daniel Alessi.

“They’re taking something that’s already being produced, essentially, and adding value to that with very little carbon footprint,” Alessi said. 

“It’s exciting because there’s certainly a green aspect to it.”

Alessi said it would also be advantageous for Canada to have its own internal source of lithium.

The limiting factor is technology to convert the brine into a usable product.

“We’re at the point right now where the technology is, I would say, holding back the commercialization of the process,” he said. Alessi added that some key players have reached the pilot stage with aims to reach an industrial scale process in two to five years.

Daniel Alessi is an associate professor at the University of Alberta who specializes in clean lithium extraction from the oilfield. (Audrey Neveu/Radio-Canada)

Canadian companies developing processes

In December, Vancouver-based Lithium Standard announced it had successfully completed a proof-of-concept to extract lithium from a brine in Arkansas.

There are a number of companies in Alberta developing their own processes, including Summit Nanotech.

The Calgary-based startup delayed plans for testing in 2020 due to the pandemic but further developed its process, which CEO Amanda Hall says resulted in improved operating expenses and reduced end-to-end greenhouse gas emissions.

“The opportunity to grow a sector that supports the future of renewable energy storage and electromobility while in parallel continuing efforts to create a low carbon barrel of oil sets Alberta apart in the energy landscape,” she said in an email.

“We are excited to be a part of this.”

Hall said a pilot is on schedule to be commissioned in Chile this year. 

Reducing greenhouse gas output

Calgary-based E3 Metals was founded in 2016 and hopes to run a pilot of its own lithium extraction process by the end of this year. It aims to eventually drill its own project into the Leduc Formation.

CEO Chris Doornbos said the eventual operation’s greenhouse gas output will be mitigated by using electricity from its own gas-fired power plant, creating a net zero emission for the product.

He also said that compared to mining a more traditional lithium operation, the model uses only about three per cent of the land use and will not consume fresh water or leave tailings.

“When you look at it from that perspective, producing lithium in Alberta is much more environmentally responsible than most other production of lithium in the world.”

Doornbos said lithium extraction presents an opportunity for expertise already present in Alberta’s energy sector to be put to a new use.

“At the end of the day, it’s still putting Albertans back to work — it’s nothing we don’t know how to do or haven’t done before.”

E3 Metals’ current roadmap aims for commercial operations by 2024.

New carbon solution in Alberta delivers use for industrial emissions

World’s largest capacity CO2 pipeline part of expandable capture and storage system

Alberta – June 2, 2020 – A new system built to safely transport and permanently store CO2 is shifting how carbon is managed in the province. The Alberta Carbon Trunk Line (ACTL) system, the world’s newest large-scale carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) project, is now fully operational.

The ACTL system captures industrial emissions and delivers the CO2 to mature oil and gas reservoirs in Central Alberta for use in enhanced oil recovery and permanent storage. The current supply of CO2 is captured at the North West Redwater Partnership (NWR) Sturgeon Refinery and Nutrien’s Redwater Fertilizer Facility, offering a sustainable emissions solution for energy and agriculture sectors. The CO2 then travels down a 240-kilometre pipeline, which is owned by Wolf Midstream, to a storage reservoir owned by Enhance Energy.

The system includes the world’s largest capacity pipeline for CO2 from human activity, capable of transporting up to 14.6 million tonnes of CO2 per year. This is equal to the impact of capturing theCO2 from more than 2.6 million cars in Alberta. Designed with excess capacity, the system will connect more facilities and storage reservoirs in the future as demand increases for an effective solution to manage emissions.

“This is just the beginning,” said Jeff Pearson, President of Wolf Midstream’s Carbon Business Unit. “This critical piece of infrastructure supports significant future emissions solutions, new utilization pathways and innovation in the carbon capture space. The future of energy and a lower carbon economy relies on key infrastructure like the ACTL.”

“This will change how business is done in Alberta,” said Kevin Jabusch, CEO of Enhance Energy, which is injecting CO2 from the ACTL into oil fields near Clive, Alberta. “We are putting CO2 touse. We permanently keep CO2 out of the environment, while producing low-carbon energy. Not only are we reinvigorating our rural energy economy at a time when it is needed most, but we are playing a key role in advancing a sustainable solution to global energy requirements.”

“The Sturgeon Refinery made a bold decision over 15 years ago to incorporate carbon capture into its design,” said Kerry Margetts, President, NWR Sturgeon Refinery, “Our founders believed then, as we are proving today, that carbon capture was our environmental competitive advantage to producing a low carbon intensity diesel from Alberta’s bitumen resources.”

The ACTL system marks an important milestone project on the path for Alberta and Canada to effectively manage carbon emissions and support a cleaner global energy future.

The Alberta Carbon Trunk Line System www.actl.ca
The Alberta Carbon Trunk Line (ACTL) system is the world’s newest integrated, large-scale carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) project. Designed as the backbone infrastructure needed to support Alberta’s lower carbon economy, it has the world’s largest capacity pipeline for CO2 from human activity, capable of transporting up to 14.6 million tonnes of CO₂ per year. This is equal to the impact of capturing the CO2 from more than 2.6 million cars in Alberta.

Pioneered in Alberta, Canada, the ACTL system is now operational. The initial supply of CO2 is captured and compressed from a bitumen refinery and a fertilizer plant in Alberta’s IndustrialHeartland. It is then transported to mature oil fields in Central Alberta for use in enhanced oil recovery (EOR) before permanent storage.

Not only does the ACTL system remove greenhouse gas from the atmosphere and decrease Canada’s carbon footprint, it uses the captured CO₂ to revitalize a light oil industry, leveragingAlberta’s wealth of suitable storage reservoirs, technical expertise and innovative spirit to create thousands of new jobs, and generate meaningful tax revenue.

The multi-faceted ACTL system is owned and operated by a consortium of companies. It has also been supported by both the Government of Alberta (through its Carbon Capture and Storage Fund) and the Government of Canada (through its ecoEnergy Technology Initiative and the Clean
Energy Fund) to help make CCUS technologies more accessible and encourage wider use of the technology around the world.

Wolf Midstream www.wolfmidstream.com
Wolf Midstream (Wolf) is an Alberta-based private company backed by the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPP Investments). Wolf was formed in 2015 to focus on the acquisition and development of midstream infrastructure and opportunities in Western Canada. Wolf is committed
to transforming the future of carbon reduction through the development of world scale CO2 infrastructure in both Canada and abroad. Wolf is the owner and operator of the compression facilities at the two capture sites, as well as the 240-kilometre pipeline that safely transports the CO2 from the capture sites to the CO2 EOR operation in Central Alberta.

Enhance Energy www.enhanceenergy.com
Enhance Energy (Enhance) is a private oil and gas development company specializing in EOR and focused on using CO2 for miscible flooding. Enhance is the owner and operator of the utilization and storage portion of the ACTL system through its CO2 EOR operation at the Clive field in Central Alberta. The leadership team has extensive experience in the energy industry including the planning and implementation of similar, large-scale CO2 EOR projects. Enhance’s ability to store CO2 while increasing light oil production will result in a new and significant low carbon source of fossil fuel production.

North West Redwater Partnership www.nwrsturgeonrefinery.com
The North West Redwater Partnership (NWR) is a joint venture between NWU LP (Alberta), owned by North West Refining Inc. (Alberta) and CNR (Redwater) Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Canadian Natural Resources Limited. NWR operates the Sturgeon Refinery near Redwater, Alberta. It is the world’s only refinery designed from the ground up to minimize its environmental footprint through carbon capture. Phase 1 of the refinery captures 1.3 million tonnes of CO2 per year, which serves as the anchor supply for the ACTL. Because of its carbon capture solution, diesel produced at the Sturgeon Refinery is the lowest “wells-to-wheels” CO2 transportation fuel based on heavy feedstock.

Nutrien www.nutrien.com
Nutrien is the world’s largest provider of crop inputs and services, playing a critical role in helping growers increase food production in a sustainable manner. Nutrien is the owner and operator of the Redwater Fertilizer Facility, which captures approximately 0.3 million tonnes of previously
vented CO2 per year.

Nutrien has also used carbon capture since 2013 as a technical option for reducing greenhouse gas emissions at their Geismar, LA facility, diverting more than 248,000 tonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere in 2019.
