NileFiber™, A Sustainable Fiber Crop
NileFiber™ is a domesticated cultivar patented by TreeFree Solutions, Inc.
NileFiber™ is in the Arundo donax family but has certain physical traits that make it identifiable. NileFiber™ is protected by patent plant regulations. In 2012 the company filed a plant patent naming it “NileFiber”. Two main attributes of the cultivar are that it looks different than other members of the Arundo donax family and it is also very robust, giving it a superior per acre crop yield.
We Provide Diversified Feedstock Solutions
Risk reduction through science and agricultural discoveries is crucial for the successful implementation of large-scale crop-transition, replacement, and viability of any renewable sources of energy where reliability is essential. Ongoing study and research continue and new partnerships are being developed in order to guarantee the reliability of NileFiber as a clear choice for large-scale sustainable feedstock. Learn more about our industry solutions.
TreeFree’s mission is to provide a sustainable, cost-effective biomass feedstock supply for the production and manufacture of green value-added products made from NileFiber™.
TreeFree Biomass Solutions, Inc. (TreeFree) is a biotech company that was founded in 1996. Since then, TreeFree has been focused on the creation of a world-class scientific research and development team with the ability to develop innovative patented applications. The team efforts have been concentrated on the planting, growing and processing of the plant Arundo donax; which has been developed into a proprietary cultivar, and our patented product known as NileFiber. The proprietary process has proven applications to be capable of producing viable, sustainable, environmentally friendly, economically sound products. These quality green products can replace fossil products and sequester carbon 15 times more effective than trees based on the phenomenal growth of NileFiber.
TreeFree has filed patents for its proprietary propagation system for sterile grasses and for its plant cultivar known as NileFiber. TreeFree has expanded its marketplace from non-wood pulp and paper to building composites, biofuels, biochemicals, and energy. The patented NileFiber chip provides solutions to each of these growing marketplace sectors.
The years of extensive research and development and patent processing have poised TreeFree to become one of the most effective environmental leaders in the world. We have secured global interest in the establishment of millions of acres of NileFiber farms which will simultaneously begin to clean up our environment and atmosphere and increase market value for its shareholders.
TreeFree’s immediate market focus is on two core products: the NileFiber Plant and the NileFiber Chip. TreeFree can plant NileFiber Plants and process NileFiber Chips to meet the specifications of any customer, regardless of the industry.
The investment that TreeFree has made in developing processes and applications, and filing global patents has been done strategically to create a barrier to entry for our competition. This approach gives TreeFree a competitive advantage in taking its core products to market. With 70% of the world’s patents on Arundo donax, TreeFree is the only company that has the ability to economically provide a sustainable green feedstock as well as supply the converting processes.
A 10,000 Acre Case Study
TreeFree Solutions Inc.has worked with the University of Washington to study the specific abilities of NileFiber to capture carbon from the air. Based on our formulas and using a 10,000-acre farm as an example of a biomass crop, the following would apply:
A 10,000-acre NileFiber™ biomass farm CO2 sequestration is expected to be 120 tons per acre. That 10,000 acres will then equate to 1.2 million tons of CO2 captured, resulting in the equivalent of removing 210,526 cars from US roads and saving 2.97 million acres of rainforest per year.
These are incredible numbers not only for the simple example of a 10,000-acre plantation but for the vision of what the future of clean air in our county and other countries could actually look like. These formulas are powerful evidence and provide a beginning to restore the world’s air quality for a cleaner future. With countries like China moving to increase coal consumption at a staggering pace, the possibility of balancing the severe CO2 rates that are increasing annually brings promise to an environment already in need.
Carbon Sequestration is the first of several innate characteristics of our biomass. NileFiber™ has the ability to capture carbon at a massive rate per acre per year in comparison to other biomass crops, as well as in comparison to standard trees being used for biomass. We all desire clear air today. In a world that is falling victim to the stress of pollution globally, and NileFiber™ has the ability to sequester carbon at a rate of 15 times that of trees, we are now able to bring in a unique solution. The benefits of our product will be a clear choice to businesses in industries that are looking for viable for solutions. With government regulations closing the gap for industries, such as the coal industry, to find cleaner solutions for their continued success, TreeFree Solutions Inc. believes that Carbon Sequestration will become a major selling point.
A Plan for Global Carbon Sequestration
The high growth rate and biomass production of NileFiber™ provides impressive figures in terms of sequestration of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2). As a basis for calculation, assume that NileFiber™ will produce a conservative 20 tons of above ground dry biomass per acre per year. In addition, about 10 tons per year of below ground biomass accumulates for a total of 30 tons per acre each year.
NileFiber™ could have a significant impact on atmospheric carbon balances. Our calculations show that a single large NileFiber™ plantation could hold and repair atmospheric carbon dioxide in annual quantities equivalent to emissions from large fleets of vehicles. Enough of these large plantations placed around the world could ultimately stop the damage that CO2 is doing to our atmosphere, leaving little or no environmental footprint from vehicles that are currently driving on our planet.
NileFiber™ is a perennial grass that grows so vigorously it can be harvested annually. When grown as a crop it drastically reduces soil erosion compared to annual crops because annual plowing and seeding are not necessary. It also returns essential nutrients to the soil. NileFiber™ is a fast growing grass that proliferates during the warm seasons of the year. During colder months it becomes dormant and in this state is able to survive temperatures well below freezing.
Strategic Environmental Benefits of NileFiber™
Phytoremediation and soil detoxifier
NileFiber sequesters carbon from the atmosphere and phytoremediates 15 times faster per acre per year than any known plant or tree.
Virtually eliminates soil erosion
Soil mass is bound tightly by NileFiber's highly developed fibrous root system.
No tilling or disruption of the soil
After the initial planting of NileFiber the only mechanized component is crop gathering with a low ground pressure forage harvester.
Minimal chemical inputs
NileFiber does not require pesticides or fungicides and has low fertilizer requirements – fertilizer applications are less than half that of conventional crops.
Creates wildlife habitat
Minimal disruption and long duration between harvests and creates habitats for migratory birds.
Reduces potential for drought
Green belts cool the surface and draw moist cover from clouds increasing rainfall.
Creates new soil
Growing NileFiber creates new soil particles and increases soil depth and matrix over time.
Oxygenates the air and purifies the atmosphere
High metabolism of NileFiber loads the environment with oxygen and reduces dust and pollen.
Strategic Environmental Benefits of NileFiber™
Superfund or Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980 (CERCLA) is a United States federal law designed to clean up sites contaminated with hazardous substances as well as broadly defined "pollutants or contaminants". Superfund also gives authority to federal natural resource agencies, states and Indian tribes to recover natural resource damages caused by releases of hazardous substances.
CleanSweep™ - NileFiber can be used for the Phytoremediation of contaminated soils and water. Other toxins found in the soil of landfills can be cleansed by planting NileFiber. NileFiber, through a process called photosynthesis, converts massive amounts of carbon dioxide into life-enhancing oxygen.
Carbon Credits - Phytoremediation and Air clean-up - NileFiber carbon sequesters and phytoremediates 15 times faster per acre per year than trees because of its mass per acre and its growth rate of 3” per day during growing season.
TreeFree Biomass Solutions and the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals
As a blueprint for the organization's commitment to sustainability, the United Nations released 17 Sustainable Development Goals that provide a blueprint for governments, the private sector, and civil society to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all. To do our part, TFBS looked at their 17 goals and identified how the company contributes to these goals through our operations or how the company can create programs to help contribute. These 17 goals are listed below with their definitions and TFBS's contribution to each goal.
TreeFree's contributions to the Sustainable Development goals stem from a few basic concepts rooted in the three pillars of sustainability (Economic, Environmental, and Social):
Economic: TreeFree's agricultural foundation shifts the forestry and fossil fuel industries from centralized resource-owning companies to decentralized farmers around the world producing feedstock for an array of products. In doing so, TreeFree creates new jobs for farmers globally, boosting people's and communities' incomes. Increased wealth helps address and alleviate issues throughout the 17 goals.
Environmental: TreeFree's use of NileFiber as a feedstock instead of forests and fossil fuels both decreases total carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and safeguards against deforestation.
Social: The infusion of capital/wages into communities supports the development and access to social services/goods. The alleviation of environmental damage
