EcoSynthetix Announces Commissioning of New Manufacturing Line in Burlington

Burlington, Ontario, February 21, 2024 – EcoSynthetix Inc. (TSX: ECO) (“EcoSynthetix” or the “Company”), a renewable chemicals company that produces a portfolio of commercially proven bio-based products, today announced the successful completion and commissioning of a new production line at its Centre of Innovation in Burlington, Ontario. The new production line replaces an older line EcoSynthetix used for North American production operated by a supplier in Tennessee whose contract expired at the end of 2023.

“The new line provides us greater control and flexibility as we pursue growth opportunities in the tissue, packaging and pulp vertical and the wood composites and personal care end markets,” said Jeff MacDonald, CEO of EcoSynthetix. “We successfully completed the installation below budget and we are now running commercial scale volumes on it. As we work with a growing customer base across a wider range of products, end-to-end control of our North American production improves our ability to meet the needs of our customers. The project also demonstrates how efficiently we can scale the business with new manufacturing capacity as demand in the market expands for our bio-based, low-carbon solutions.”

EcoSynthetix invested approximately $1.8 million, in the new equipment and minor alterations to its existing facility in Burlington, net of $0.5 million received from the sale of redundant assets. The new line will primarily serve customers in the Americas. The Company’s production assets at its toll manufacturing partner’s facility in Oosterhout, The Netherlands, will continue to be the primary supplier of demand in Europe and Asia.
