We provide economical biomass solutions
What sets TFBS apart from other biomass companies is that TFBS has targeted Arundo Donax as a centrifuge for its patents due to its many superior uses in industry crops and multitude of end users in markets spanning the globe in seven industries. Our market advantage is the ability to provide an environmentally friendly, sustainable, closed-loop feedstock with yields that surpass competing biomass options. The exclusive TreeFree international patents for planting, propagation, growing, harvesting and refining, a specialized cultivar of Arundo Donax called Nile Fiber™, make possible the manufacture of countless essential products across seven industries. The results are high quality pulp, paper, building materials, bio-fuels, bio-energy, pharmaceutical products, chemicals and more. All without destroying a single tree.
TreeFree Biomass Solutions Inc. (TFBS) provides cost effective solutions for the biomass market place. TFBS has spent 12 years partnering with research organizations, scientists, and universities to establish a closed loop biomass crop that is superior to existing biomass options.
In 1999 TFBS, commissioned scientific research at the University of Washington, Washington State University and Auburn University to pioneer, verify and patent revolutionary standards for utilizing Nile Fiber™. Below you will find listed many of our companies accomplishments.
