Crop Residue Supply Chain Services

For customers in the manufacturing and production business of various products ranging from cellulosic ethanol to organic fiber based products, Aden Brook offers supply chain solutions eliminating the variability of sourcing material to keep a factory going year round.

Our approach is simple. We learn about what product and quality specs you need and when you need it delivered. Then we produce or source that product for you keeping it in storage till you need it and delivering it to you in the grade you need eliminating your risk of storage damage.

For many customers sourcing and storage can be very costly because the customer needs the product to be a specific grade at time of final processing. There is a huge amount of variability in storage of fiber bales. Depending on the harvest season moisture, timeliness of baling and storage can have a large effect on how the product looks coming out of storage months later for processing. There is also many liability issues ranging from fire in stacks to falling bales in stack yards.

For Aden Brook our advantage in supplying you is that we already have the people, equipment, storage and customers in place creating a network that makes the whole process more efficient. For a customer trying to ramp up production and keep their factory supplied with the right product while trying to plan and source product months or even years ahead of time leaving this part to us can be a huge cost savings.


Parts of the supply process that you no longer need to worry about are:

  • Sourcing of acres to harvest
  • Harvest production and baling of dry fiber material from field crops
  • Timely transportation from field to yard.
  • Yard stacking.
  • Dry product storage and storage methods.
  • Fire and moisture risk while in storage.
  • De-stacking, grading and redelivery to plant.
  • Initial grinding of fiber to workable length.
  • Liability of having the product in storage and then not needing it should plans change.

All these aspects of the supply process are parts that if done by inexperienced processes/personal can cost you large sums of money.

We can produce and supply these products in almost every major agricultural region of the US and Canada depending on your factory location. Using our transportation network we can also supply from outside the immediate area depending on your needs.
