We are JPB

JPB is located in Salaberry-de-Valleyfield. We are an organization certified by Quebec’s Ministère de l’Environnement and which helps to reduce greenhouse gases through the energy recovery of post-consumption wood waste, mainly treated wood.

Recycling of Treated Wood

JPB provides the “missing piece” in the sustainable development equation for treated wood by implementing the principles of recycling, reuse and repurposing to its own philosophy of continuous improvement.

A Source for Green Energy

Our cogeneration plant features the latest advances in energy production from wood waste such as railroad ties, utility poles and other wood residues from the construction industry that are used as biomass.

JPB - the History

Founded in 2003, JPB was then known as Industries JPB. Since then, we have merged with JPB Énergies, our cogeneration plant to become JPB, a treated wood recycling facility and producer of green energy.

JPB holds various certificates of authorization based on new criteria and issued by Quebec’s Ministère de l’Environnement for the reclamation of treated wood. Every year, we repurpose 90,000 tons of wood which are used as biomass to produce 9.75 Megawatts of electricity daily. This represents the electricity supply for 150 single-family homes in Quebec.

The 4R Concept

01.

Reduce (at source)

Built according to strict environmental norms, a 420,000 sq. ft site makes it possible to reclaim treated wood from corporations operating in various sectors.

02.

Reuse

Railroad ties, structural poles, power line poles, lumber, retaining wall, temporary bridge deck, structural beam, highway guardrails and more.

03.

Recycle

Poles and residues from shredding that cannot be reused are crushed and transformed into wood chips which are then used as biomass for our cogeneration process.

04.

Recovery

No residues are left in our recycling process: the metals are resold and oil waste from our recycling operations are sent back to be reused by other companies.
