World’s Preeminent Environmentally Responsible Chitin Plant Opens in Virginia, USA

Virginia chitin facility opens expected to usher in the chitin economy in the mid-Atlantic for medical, cosmetics, filtration, and food storage industries

The Ross Group (LSE:RGP)

Our sustainable, patented Ionic Liquid extraction process is free from the harsh treatment associated with caustic ‘pulping,’ the Chitin we produce has a higher molecular weight and greater purity.”

— John Keyes

RICHMOND, VIRGINIA, UNITED STATES AMERICA, January 7, 2019 / — Jan. 7, 2019 Chesterfield, VA – The world’s preeminent environmentally responsible commercial Chitin extraction plant is transforming shrimp shells (considered “waste” for landfills) into one of the most important substances for human and the planet’s health.

Mari Signum – Mid Atlantic (recently acquired by Premium Listed London Stock Exchange Company, Ross Group PLC) launched its unique operations on December 27th and promises to showcase the Richmond, Virginia and USA area as the global leader in both “green” chemistry and the source for high grade Chitin and its many diverse derivatives.

Traditional Chitin extraction, called “pulping,” uses a mix of caustic acids and bases whose runoff is environmentally toxic. “Pulping” is largely forbidden throughout the Western Hemisphere.

Mari Signum’s technology uses environmentally benign Ionic Liquids in a recirculating system – a pioneered process developed at the University of Alabama and now licensed to Mari Signum exclusively. This incomparable processing method replaces many industries’ reliance on toxic petrochemicals. The company’s patented technology earned a “Green Chemistry Challenge Award” October 15, 2018 from the American Chemical Society.

“Because our sustainable, patented Ionic Liquid extraction process is free from the harsh treatment associated with caustic ‘pulping,’ the Chitin we produce has a higher molecular weight and greater purity. It’s ideal for the most pressing human health, bio-tech, agricultural and environmental applications today,” said John P. Keyes, Mari Signum’s CEO.

The innovative plant takes shrimp shells once destined for coastal landfill “dumps” and separates out their two structural compounds: Calcium carbonate and Chitin, one of the Earth’s most abundant bio-polymers and biodegradable compounds.

Chitin is non-toxic and has potent anti-fungal, antibiotic, anti-microbial, anti-bacterial, and antioxidant properties. In its many forms, Chitin is key to innovations in medicine, pharmaceutical sciences, agriculture, and mitigation of water pollution. Chitin contributes to a far-ranging spectrum of beneficial applications in human health and environmental benefits.


First identified in 1811 and applied more than a century later to water purification, Chitin-based applications in medicine are at the vanguard of wound-treatment, surgical and organ repair technologies as well as cancer drug delivery vehicles to name a few. In agriculture, the use of Chitin is at the forefront of non-toxic bio-pesticides, bio-fertilizers and efforts to enhance crop yield. Consumer product applications are as wide-spread as biodegradable plastics production, non-toxic and non-allergenic cosmetics’ preservatives, to wine-making and the extraction of uranium from seawater.

“We believe Mari Signum offers a viable, environmentally-responsible means of producing Chitin,” said Victoria White, chairwoman of the company. “At this stage, we may not immediately change the world, but we certainly plan on showing the world how to change.”

Is the Farm Bill Forcing the FDA to Regulate CBD Products Sold by State-Licensed Marijuana Businesses?

How can the FDA justify regulating hemp-derived CBD products while ignoring similar products produced and sold through state-licensed marijuana businesses?

DENVER, COLORADO, USA, January 3, 2019 / — Hemp farmers, formulators of CBD products and entrepreneurs entering the hemp and CBD industries were delighted when the Agricultural Improvement Act (the “Farm Bill”) was signed into law by President Trump. Those same entrepreneurs and farmers enthusiastic responses will likely be tempered when they understand that Congress has now enacted legislation creating more problems than existed prior to the passage of the Farm Bill.

The Farm Bill provides a role for the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to regulate products containing cannabis or cannabis-derived products. This includes both the non-psychoactive cannabinoid, CBD, as well as cannabis or cannabis-derived products that include the psychoactive cannabinoid THC.

In the past, the FDA has refrained from regulating cannabis products produced under state-legal marijuana programs and avoided, for the most part, regulating CBD-derived products produced from hemp. The unintended consequence of the passage of the Farm Bill now means that the FDA is required to get involved in something it has sought for many years to avoid.

It would seem to be arbitrary for the FDA to regulate hemp-derived CBD products as food additives or as health, wellness or nutritional products without the agency regulating the same products containing CBD sold through state-licensed marijuana businesses. To do so would essentially destroy the federally-legal hemp industry while leaving the federally-illegal state marijuana industry untouched.

Commissioner Scott Gottlieb, interviewed by CNBC anchor Joe Kernan on November 20, 2018, suggested that federal action on cannabis policy is inevitable and would occur shortly. Gottlieb said that recreational cannabis doesn’t “fall within our purview right now.” He also stated “But look, we do regulate compounds that are making drug claims and we regulate botanical use of marijuana. We have approved compounds derived from marijuana, but there is no demonstrated medical use of botanical marijuana. That’s the bottom line.”

Immediately after the Farm Bill was signed into law, Gottlieb issued a statement clarifying the FDA’s policy regarding cannabis-derived products. “In short, we (FDA) treat products containing cannabis or cannabis-derived compounds as we do any other FDA-regulated products-meaning they’re subject to the same authorities and requirements as FDA-regulated products containing any other substance.” Gottlieb ended by saying, “…the FDA will advance new steps to better define our public health obligations in this area We’ll also continue to closely scrutinize products that could pose risks to consumers”

Complicating the FDA’s policy regarding CBD was the approval in June 2018 of G.W. Pharmaceutical’s Epidiolex. It is a pure form of plant-derived CBD and is specifically recommended for the treatment of seizures associated with two types of epilepsy. This FDA action resulted in CBD being classified as a drug. Because CBD is now an FDA-approved drug, it should not be able to be sold as a food additive or for health, wellness or nutritional purposes.

There is an option that could exist for the hemp-derived CBD industry. It is feasible that the same CBD products could be sold, without purporting therapeutic claims, as hemp-flower oil or phytocannabinoid-rich hemp oil.

How the passage of the Farm Bill impacts the use of CBD as a food additive is also an unknown. The FDA could take the position that food, including drinks with CBD, cannot be marketed within the state borders where they were produced or interstate until the safety of CBD as a food additive is demonstrated.

Congress, probably unwittingly, has forced the FDA’s hand to regulate cannabinoid-derived products produced and sold through state-licensed marijuana businesses. It is hardly a job the FDA relishes doing and probably an issue it wished to never address. If and when the FDA begins this task the public outcry from consumers, patients and state-licensed marijuana businesses will be loud and long.

A Funding Solution

Unauthorized Immigrants, Employers and U. S. Taxpayers all stand to gain from the ITIG Model”

— Mark Jason, Director, Immigrant Tax Inquiry Group

MALIBU, CALIFORNIA, USA, January 3, 2019 / — President Trump has made it clear that he would like Mexico’s 129 million people to pay for a wall. And we believe to be fair, there are others—not just Mexicans—who should make these payments. Many are responsible for the burden on taxpayers that illegal immigration causes—8 million working unauthorized immigrants and their employers take advantage of our broken immigration system and benefit monetarily.

When Congress addressed tax reform in 2018, they neglected to adjust our broken immigrant tax system. Individuals who are not authorized to work in the United States received billions of dollars from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). A study, conducted by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA), found that claims for this credit by these individuals escalated sharply from $924 million in 2005 to $4.2 billion in 2010 and $6 billion in 2015.

An effective tax has not been developed for unauthorized workers—including 4 million in the cash economy—and those who hire them. An efficient tax would generate enough funds to mitigate many of the objections to the cost of immigration in this country.

There is a solution. Five + Five, a model developed by the Immigrant Tax Inquiry Group (ITIG), is an efficient way to collect fair contributions from those who benefit most from illegal immigration practices. Employees and employers would each contribute 5 cents for every immigrant dollar earned, which would provide the president with $5 billion for border security and $210 billion over 10 years for immigration issues on the state level, including money for infrastructure. And a bonus—it will generate 1.7 million new American jobs.

The incentives for participating in the program are powerful–legality for employees and employers, access to health care and education, and the right to travel to their home of origin and return safely.

This plan will allow immigrants to assimilate more easily into our society with respect, equality, accountability and legality, and it can stand alone or be coupled with other plans, such as the Gang of Eight bill.

We need reform—now. This proposal has been well-researched and is practical, fair and flexible—ready to evolve with the changes as they come. It’s a go!

Auto and Equipment Financing Consumers Shift Online to Find New, Better Financing Options.

2018 saw a fundamental shift in consumer behaviour when it comes to auto and equipment financing. Canadians increasingly looking online to find better options.

In 2018 we saw a huge growth in consumers coming online, to Smarter Loans, to explore their financing options. With the help of our partners, we are able to bring this service to Canadians nationwide.”

— Vlad Sherbatov, President of Smarter Loans

TORONTO, N/A, CANADA, January 2, 2019 / — More and more consumers are shifting online to discover financing options for auto and equipment purchases.

The typical auto or equipment purchase journey of the past included a visit to a nearby dealership to find the right car, van or truck, followed by a conversation with an in-house financing specialist to arrange the loan for the purchase or lease of the vehicle. The disadvantage of this process is that any particular dealership only deals with a certain number of financing providers, which can make it more difficult to get approved for financing, or the terms of the deal may be sub-par.

However more lending companies are now able to accept an application and offer financing pre-approvals online, before the visit to a dealer even takes place. It gives the freedom to Canadians to discover the best financing options available to them, before stepping foot to a dealership. It also makes the shopping experience much smoother, since they know that the money part is already taken care of.

While this trend is already shaping up, there is still much work to be done, and Smarter Loans is one company that is committed to bringing the best auto and equipment financing options to Canadian consumers, entirely online. By partnering with Smarter Loans (, Canada’s top financing companies that historically issued loans exclusively through their dealer networks are now able to deal directly with consumers.

“In 2018 we saw a huge growth in consumers coming online, seeking out what financing options are available to them. They don’t want to waste time going from dealer to dealer hoping that one of them can find the right financing deal, at the right price and terms. They want more options, in a faster and more convenient way. With the help of our auto and equipment financing partners, we are able to fill that gap, and support this fundamental shift in consumer behaviour in Canada.”, said Vlad Sherbatov, President of Smarter Loans.

Financing in the auto industry is changing dramatically, and while consumers are increasingly seeking alternative sources of funding, they’re not always satisfied with the options that are available to them.

According to the State of Alternative Lending in Canada 2018 study published by Smarter Loans, Canadians are increasingly likely to approach an alternative lending provider before seeking a traditional loan product, but the industry still lags behind other loan types, such as payday, home and personal financing lenders.

Some of the study’s key findings include:

– How alternative lending is growing each year in Canada’s auto industry.
– Why this form of alternative financing is still lagging behind other online loan types.
– How Canadians discover and evaluate potential providers.
– Why many auto loan financing seekers are not satisfied with the application process.
– Consumer priorities an sentiments about the auto financing industry.
– Why auto financing providers continue to receive lower than average reviews from consumers compared with other loan product types.
– How the industry needs to evolve in order to become a viable alternative to traditional funding options.
