Following extensive site-search work across the United States, SPGX portfolio company Cormo USA Inc, in combination with the Indiana Economic Development Corporation, has announced Cormo USA’s first factory will be located in the state of Indiana.
Under the agreement with the State of Indiana, Cormo USA Inc is eligible for $3.5m in incentives, as well as potential additional local incentives from Rush County, Indiana, to create 250 new manufacturing jobs in the state by the end of the year 2023.
The new facility, which the company plans to break ground on this summer, will process maize straw from up to 150,000 acres of corn fields each year into a 100 percent sustainable peat moss substitute (TEFA) for agricultural uses and into foam products (BABS) for material science uses. This patented process has been utilized at the company’s pilot plant in France since 2016.
Sustainable Projects Group Inc. launched Cormo USA Inc. as a joint venture with Switzerland based Cormo AG in late 2018 and holds a 35% stake in the project.
Sustainable Projects Group together with Cormo USA will hold an Investor Update Call to outline its expansion strategy at the end of June, sharing more details about the exciting prospects and developments in the state of Indiana.
