Welcome to TTS – Sustainable Biocomposite Technologies
TTS Inc. has developed and brought high performance bio-material products to market in sustainable ways since 1998. On the one hand, we optimize raw materials from the agriculture and forestry sectors to create value-added, certified, and market-ready products. On the other, we are filling an important niche in the bio-industry by organizing interested parties into commercial manufacturing models. Stakeholders are diverse and can include: investors, entrepreneurs, government, suppliers, manufacturers, communities, designers, etc. For example, in 2009, TTS mobilized key players in government, the automotive and chemicals industries, and the Town of Drayton Valley, Alberta to develop a $15-million bio-fibre commercial plant and spin-off company to manage it in Drayton Valley’s Bio-Mile. TTS is currently focusing on commercializing its suite of products.
TTS products sustainably replace petroleum with local natural fibres by using advanced technologies. TTS has developed four market-ready products: (1) fibre panels, (2) fibre-reinforced cement, (3) structural insulated panels (SIP), (4) engineered fibre mats, and (5) fibre-plastic composites.
They are applied in construction, auto parts, remediation, and other industries around the world seeking cost-effective and sustainable solutions. TTS commercialization models address the commercial phase of the value chain. They are customized to produce substantial financial, social, and environmental returns for everyone involved.
Since 1998, TTS has been a catalyst, growing the bio-industrial sector through its technical incubator services, advocacy, advisory role, business development expertise, and focus on commercializing proven bio-material products. The industry is now worth $6.5 billion in the province of Alberta alone. TTS’s commercialization role fills an important niche in the next stage of advancing an industry that has the potential to be bigger than oil.
