- Cost savings and new revenues, shared services, reduced regulatory burden and increased competitiveness.
- The community enjoys a cleaner, healthier environment, business and job development, an attraction for recruitment and an end to conflict between the economy and the environment.
- Government receives increased tax revenues, reduced enforcement burden, reduced costs of environmental and health damage and reduced demand on municipal infrastructure
- For the environment, there is reduced demand on finite resources , decreased local and global pollution, increased use of renewable energy and materials and an overall renewal of natural systems.
The City of Prince Albert has the opportunity to become a national leader in attracting industry for the production, processing and marketing of high value “green energy” products. A feasibility study indicated that Prince Albert is ideally situated and has the necessary resources and people to develop a Green Industrial Park. Many types of industry may be interested in locating in this park, including developers of:
Biomass - plant and animal material, especially agricultural waste products, used as a source of fuel.
Biofuels - liquid fuels derived from vegetation
Bioethanol - an alcohol from fermenting sugar components of plants
