Meridian, Generex Seal Corn Ethanol Byproducts Deal (Ind. Report)
Meridian Waste Solutions,Attis Innovations
Date: 2018-02-12
Further to our Jan. 12, coverage, Atlanta-based Meridian Waste Solutions, Inc. reports it has inked a strategic partnership with Alpharette, Georgia-based Genarex LLC, to develop a range of agricultural waste based bioadditives for the plastics market.

According to Meridian, the US corn ethanol industry produces about 50 million tpy of distillers dried grains(DDGs) which Genarex's technology converts into a polymerized material branded as Bylox. This material is claimed to have a high value as a functional filler in numerous plastic formulations.

Attis Innovations, a wholly owned subsidiary of Meridian Waste Solutions Inc., recovers lignin from the byproduct stream of biomass processing industries, such as pulp and paper and cellulosic ethanol. The recovered lignin is said to be unique in that it is a melt flowing biomaterial that is low cost and acts as a polymerized biofiller in applications such as plastics, adhesives and transportation fuels. .(Source: Meridian, WMW, 10 Feb., 2018) Contact: Meridian Waste Solutions, Jeff Cosman, CEO, (917) 658-7878, www.amsnt.comwww.MWSinc.com; Attis, www.attisinnovations.com; Genarex LLC, (470) 253-1616, info@generex.com, https://ca.linkedin.com/company/genarex-inc, www.generex.com

Meridian Awarded $3Mn for Lignin Conversion Tech R&D (Funding)
Meridian Waste Solutions,USDA
Date: 2018-01-12
Atlanta-based Meridian Waste Solutions, Inc., an integrated, non-hazardous solid waste services and innovative technology company, is reporting receipt of $3 million in grant funding from the USDA to support the commercialization of patented and patent-pending lignin conversion and refining technologies owned by Meridian's subsidiary, Attis Innovations, Inc. -- the combination of recent transactions with American Science and Technology Corp. and Advanced Lignin Biocomposites LLC.

The U.S. DOE Bioenergy Technologies Office has consequently identified the need for technologies to be developed for the efficient use of lignin as a key target for accelerating the growth of the U.S. bioeconomy.

To address this challenge, a team comprising Oak Ridge National Laboratory, the University of Tennessee's Center for Renewable Carbon, University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, the Natural Resource Research Institute, Long Trail Sustainability, and Attis' research and development unit, American Science and Technology Corporation, presented the U.S. Department of Agriculture with a pathway based on Attis' technology to allow biorefineries to compete with petroleum. That pathway relies on Attis' patented and patent-pending AST-Organosolv process to fractionate biomass into cellulose, hemicellulose, and lignin, followed by the conversion of cellulose and hemicellulose into biofuel (butanol), and the conversion of lignin into acrylonitrile-butadiene-lignin (ABL Resin) using technology developed and patented by Oak Ridge National Laboratory and licensed to Attis.

Attis Innovations Plans Biomass Processing Facility (Ind. Report)
Attis Innovations,American Science Technology
Date: 2017-12-08
Atlanta-based Meridian Waste Solutions, Inc. reports that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Attis Innovations -- formerly Meridian Innovations -- has initiated commercialization plans for it first biomass processing facility and has begun evaluating locally available woody biomass feedstocks for conversion into pulp, cellulosic sugars, and AST's unique melt-flowing lignin. The company is also . assessing potential locations for its first 60,000-tpy production facility in Minnesota .

Attis holds an exclusive license to American Science Technology Corporation's (AST) patents and AST's biomass processing facility in Wausau, WI.
