SusGlobal Energy Hamilton continues the development of its 51,535 square foot facility on 3.26 acres located at 520 Nash Road North, in Hamilton, Ontario, which includes an Environmental Compliance Approval to process up to 65,884 metric tons 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 has 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. The Company believes the Property will be ready to produce and store products by September 30, 2022.
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.
The Hamilton facility will also house and distribute the products of the recently announced acquisition, a soil media, plant nutrients, and amendments producer, slated to close in Q2 2022. This 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 have signed a non-binding letter of intent with the ISO accredited company. The ramp up of production and sales of our organic liquid fertilizer and other proprietary products via our Hamilton facility will depend upon the closing of this acquisition.
"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 Bellville 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.
