Attis has just narrowed its list of potential sites down to a few locations in Florida, Georgia, Pennsylvania, New York, Kentucky and Minnesota, after evaluating the incentive offerings from various state governments and the commercial proposals of targeted land owners, site developers, contractors, feedstock suppliers and supply chain partners. According to the company, each of the proposed facilities will stimulate development for its host community while diversifying revenues and creating about 35 jobs per plant (about 50% of which will be skilled). Attis is looking forward to making the final selections in the coming weeks and months. In fact, it is planning to choose at least two sites in 2018.
