Attis Industries advances Georgia biorefinery, eyes 49 more within ten years


In Georgia, Attis Industries is planning to build a commercial-scale biorefinery that will eventually generate $35 million in annual revenue and employ over 100 people.

The company has executed a letter of intent with the city of Barnesville, Georgia, to purchase a 32-acre property for the facility. The plant will convert 200 dry tons of biomass per day into a number of biobased products, including pulp for paper products, sugar for renewable fuel production, melt-flowable lignin for use in plastics applications, and biobased chemicals for use in everyday products.

Attis selected Barnesville for its feedstock availability, proximity to finished product markets, and economic incentives. The site is also close to four colleges with relevant technical programs.

“The city of Barnesville has been fantastic to work with, and we look forward to continuing our relationship well into the future as Attis expands its manufacturing footprint,” said Jeff Cosman, the Company’s CEO. “The markets for our bioproducts are far reaching. We’re excited to develop those markets as we work to position ourselves as a leader in the bioeconomy by executing on our vision to build more than fifty biorefineries across the United States over the next ten years.”
