CN Energy's Subsidiary Completes New Manufacturing Facility

LISHUI, China, Jan. 31, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- CN Energy Group. Inc. (the "Company") today announced the completion of a new manufacturing facility by its wholly-owned subsidiary, Zhejiang CN Energy New Materials Co., Ltd.  The new facility is expected to add 2,600 square meters of production capacity when brought online after receipt of necessary environment and safety permits in April 2022. The completion of the plant marks the Company's formal entry into the water-wading charcoal market, which is expected to significantly increase its product diversity, opportunities for market share, revenue and profit growth.

The new manufacturing facility is equipped with equipment for the processing, production and packaging of activated carbon. The new factory is located in Zhejiang Province, facing the Yangtze River Delta and the Pearl River Delta, and adjacent to Fujian Province. It is a strategically important location for the operations of the Company's sales and warehousing network across the Yangtze River Delta and the Pearl River Delta region.

The porous solid surface of activated carbon is used to efficiently adsorb and remove toxic substances commonly found in water, thereby purifying it. Activated carbon is widely used across the entire water supply chain and in industrial water applications, including chemical, water and power plants, industrial wastewater treatment facilities, and paper and printing mills, among others.

Mr. Kangbin Zheng, Chairman and CEO of CN Energy Group, Inc., said, "We appreciate the full support of the local authority, the Green Industry Development Fund of Lishui Economic Development Zone, in this successful new project. We expect the new facility to take on even greater importance, given its strategic location, with a planned expansion of wading charcoal production, R&D and sales. We will continue to invest in the development of our innovative technologies and processes, as we strive to become a leading wood-based activated carbon service provider, providing a comprehensive solution to global customers in our endeavors in promoting wood-based activated carbon products to the world."
