TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / July 5, 2022 / SusGlobal Energy Corp. ("SUSGLOBAL" or the "Company") (OTCQB:SNRG), the developer of SusGro™, an award winning, revolutionary pathogen free organic liquid fertilizer, today announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, SusGlobal Energy Hamilton Ltd. ("SusGlobal Hamilton"), receives building permit No. 21 165172 00 I3 from the Planning and Economic Development Department Building Division City of Hamilton issued for a waste processing plant to convert organic waste to fertilizer and to continue the development of its 51,535 square foot facility on 3.26 acres (the "Property") located at 520 Nash Road North, in Hamilton, Ontario, which includes an Environmental Compliance Approval ("ECA") to process up to 65,884 metric tonnes per annum of organic waste into regenerative products as part of the Company's circular economy model and continued climate change initiatives.
SusGlobal Hamilton along with its architects and construction managers have progressed with the first phase of the facility which includes the process administration offices, processing and bottling plant, tipping building, distribution and warehousing sections of the facility.
The facility has been designed to produce, distribute and warehouse the Company's SusGro™ organic liquid fertilizer and other proprietary products that are provided under private label and sold through big box retailers, consumer lawn and garden suppliers and for end use to the wine, cannabis and agriculture industries.
With the addition of 11,000 square feet of corporate office space and R&D labs, the Hamilton facility will also house the continued development of SUSGLOBAL's proprietary formulations, branded liquid and dry organic fertilizers and aquaculture products that address environmental issues such as greenhouse gas emissions, soil health, and drought caused in part by agriculture that are increasingly affecting the ability to achieve yields necessary to feed a growing global population.
Synthetic chemicals are used extensively to boost yields and to prevent crop loss from pests and fungus. However, overuse of these chemicals is damaging soil health and breeding resistant pests, which is limiting long-term yield potential. SUSGLOBAL is developing technologies to replace existing practices with more environmentally friendly options.
The Hamilton facility will also house and distribute the products of the recently announced acquisition of a soil media, plant nutrients, and amendments producer. This yet to close acquisition is of an International Organization for Standardization ("ISO") accredited company which only sources the finest inputs in formulating their line of quality products that are sold to customers across Canada and the United States.
"We are pleased to have commenced construction at our second facility with a high-value Environmental Compliance Approval License and strategically located to provide a contingency plan to our municipal clients that are already using our Belleville facility where we intake organic waste and produce compost fertilizer. Equally important is the facility's proximity to agricultural clients who will purchase our outbound products including liquid and dry organic fertilizers and additional product lines carried by our acquisitions, which become wholly owned subsidiaries of SUSGLOBAL. This increased capacity, infrastructure, feedstock and licenses to scale up and meet the demand for all the existing and future product lines we have planned, without having to be reliant on any supply chain, enables us we believe to ramp up revenues and cash flows through fertilizer sales, tipping fees for intaking municipal organic waste, and monetization of carbon credits as Leaders in The Circular Economy®," stated Marc Hazout, President and CEO of SusGlobal.
