Attis plans biorefinery in Georgia

Milton, GA-based Attis Industries Inc., a diversified innovation and technology holding company, said it plans to buy a 32-acre property in Barnesville, GA, for its first commercial-scale biorefinery. It says the facility will generate roughly $35 million/y revenue and add 40 local jobs to the local economy, growing to over 100 jobs within two years.

The facility will be designed to convert 200 dry tons/d of biomass into biobased products including 30,000 tons/y of pulp for paper products, 20,000 tons/y of melt-flowable lignin for plastics applications as well as sugar for renewable fuel production and bio-based chemicals for everyday products.

Jordan Forest Products, LLC will provide raw material feedstock for the biorefinery which will be built on property adjacent to Jordan’s sawmill operations in Barnesville.
