Hello to all of our Customers and Friends;

Gyro-Trac is proud to announce that Biomass Baling System (“BBS”) has arrived in Western Canada and is operating in Alberta.

The BBS arrived in mid-January and is presently working on a jobsite north of Grande Prairie.  Daniel Gaudreault, Gyro-Trac’s owner and founder, is currently in Alberta overseeing the introduction of the new BBS, and Gyro-Trac will continue to be available to support this unit through hands-on training and service.

Regarding the Biomass Market, Gyro-Trac is working closely with Tim Keddy of the Department on Natural Resources of Canada as well as the Environmental and Sustainable Resources, private contractors and other parties.  The Canadian Biomass Market has huge potential for growth based on existence of biomass feedstock resources and the push to grow the Biomass Industry.

Gyro-Trac is also excited to announce that it has opened a sales office in Edmonton.
You can contact us locally by calling (780) 719- 9743.
Please reach out to us to learn about the BBS and exciting new developments to other Gyro-Trac’s products.

We look forward to speaking with you and gladly answering any questions you may have about Gyro-Trac.  We are also available to schedule demonstrations of the new BBS.

Daniel Gaudreault, Francois Gaudreault and I will be available in Alberta at various times over the next year or so.

Gyro-Trac anticipates opening a retail store with service, part and sales within approximately the next 12-18 months so that we can offer increased support and service our loyal customers in Western Canada.

Biomass, a renewable energy source, is biological material from living, or recently living organisms, such as wood, waste, (hydrogen) gas, and alcohol fuels. Biomass is commonly plant matter grown to generate electricity or produce heat. In this sense, living biomass can also be included, as plants can also generate electricity while still alive. The most conventional way in which biomass is used, however, still relies on direct incineration. Forest residues, for example (such as dead trees, branches and tree stumps), yard clippings, wood chips and garbage are often used for this. However, biomass also includes plant or animal matter used for production of fibers or chemicals. Biomass may also include biodegradable wastes that can be burnt as fuel. It excludes such organic materials as fossil fuels, which have been transformed by geological processes into substances such as coal or petroleum.

Industrial biomass can be grown from numerous types of plants, including miscanthus, switchgrass, hemp, corn, poplar, willow, sorghum, sugarcane, and a variety of tree species, ranging from eucalyptus to oil palm (palm oil). The particular plant used is usually not important to the end products, but it does affect the processing of the raw material.

Although fossil fuels have their origin in ancient biomass, they are not considered biomass by the generally accepted definition because they contain carbon that has been “out” of the carbon cycle for a very long time. Their combustion therefore disturbs the carbon dioxide content in the atmosphere.
