CALGARY, Alberta and TORONTO, Feb. 18, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Magnetic North Acquisition Corp. (TSXV: MNC; MNC.PR.A) (“Magnetic North” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide an update with respect to corporate activities and growth of CXTL Recycling (Canada) Corp. (“CXTL”).
CXTL is Magnetic North’s 50/50 investment into a patent-pending, nano-chemical process utilizing ultra-high frequencies to depolymerize and break down plastics and other specific materials. CXTL’s facility has been shut down as per the Alberta government mandated COVID-19 restrictions, however work has been ongoing with respect to long-term supply agreements for feedstock in the form of plastics and e-waste. Discussions are near completion and shareholders will be advised once operational agreements are finalized.
In anticipation of these agreements, delivery of commercial machinery for the processing of plastics has been scheduled. Scale up of operations is expected late in the second quarter of 2021 with initial operations commencing early in the third quarter. Additional technologies and opportunities are being evaluated to further enhance CXTL’s operations.
Andrew Osis, Co-CEO Magnetic North commented, “COVID-19 has provided many challenges and opportunities for Magnetic North and our investee companies while working from home. The mandatory non-essential shut-down of CXTL’s facility has provided opportunity for staff to negotiate long-term supply contracts and schedule construction of recycling machines in order to scale up operations. We look forward to CXTL commencing its operations as soon as possible in order to deliver revenue growth and positive cash flow for the benefit of our shareholders.”
