Site Dedication for EDT's New Headquarters
EDT announces the site dedication for its new corporate headquarters complex at 3975 Steve Reynolds Boulevard, Norcross, Georgia 30093 USA. Purchased earlier in 2007, this new 11-acre site will house EDT's world wide operations, including expanded research and development capabilities, greater manufacturing and quality control resources, and larger facilities for the company's growing sales, marketing, and central business functions.

Construction began in mid 2007 and was largely completed by the time of this site dedication held on November 16, 2007. The building was officially dedicated in a special ceremony on May 16, 2008. Leading the ribbon-cutting ceremony was the technology founder of EDT, Dr. Karl-Erik L. Eriksson. Dr. Eriksson, a microbiologist and enzymologist, has been conducting leading research on the mechanisms of cellulosic degradation for over 30 years. In 1985 he earned the Marcus Wallenberg Prize for deciphering the first subclasses of cellulase mechanisms. He began this work in his native Sweden in university-based research and later at the national institute, STFI, and later at the University of Georgia as an Eminent Scholar from 1988 until 2000. Since that time, Dr. Eriksson has been back in Sweden. This company-owned headquarters complex is a testament to the exciting growth in EDT's business and broadening value propositions made possible by Dr. Eriksson's work.

Each treatment is tailored to a mill's furnish, deink plant system, key operating conditions, as well as the desired goals from the application. EDT works with mills processing virgin pulp in the extractives management of mechanical pulps, fiber modification, and in the bio-bleaching of bleached kraft pulps.
