EnWave Hosts Showcase Event with Elea to Highlight the Synergies of PEF + REV™ Technologies

April 13, 2022

Vancouver, BC

EnWave Corporation (TSX-V:ENW | FSE:E4U) (“EnWave”, or the “Company”) is partnering with Elea, the global leader in Pulsed Electric Field (PEF) technology, to host a showcase event on the synergizing of PEF and Radiant Energy Vacuum Dehydration (REV™) for faster, higher quality, low energy drying for food applications.

The two-day showcase event is taking place April 21 – 22 at Elea’s R&D center in Quakenbruck, Germany where leaders in food innovation from around the world will meet to learn more about the applications and benefits of these two technologies paired together to make superior shelf-stable dried foods. The event will consist of presentations from PEF and REV process experts, followed by live demonstrations and one-to-one sessions in Elea’s pilot halls.

With over 200 installed systems, Elea is the world’s leading provider of PEF systems to the food and beverage industries. PEF works by gently puncturing the cell membrane of the organic material, whatever the size of cell, leading to enhanced product and process benefits. The PEF process is targeted, gentle, and clean. Using PEF facilitates faster, easier water removal, and softens the raw material being processed. The advantages of using PEF for dried products include greater yield, less product waste, and improved economics. Taste, smell, and colour in food products are all also enhanced through the use of PEF. Elea’s PEF process accelerates drying times and can allow for the processing of higher capacities. EnWave believes that using PEF as a pre-treatment to REV will allow its licensed partners to innovate products of the highest quality and taste while improving processing economics.

EnWave has placed a 10kW REV machine at Elea’s state-of-the-art pilot plant facility in Quakenbruck, Germany to showcase the material benefits of marrying the two technologies for the production of dried fruit, vegetable, meat, seafood, dairy and confectionary products. EnWave is leveraging this machine placement and the strategic collaboration with Elea to drive new business development and sales opportunities for REV drying equipment. Elea and EnWave have also appointed ScanStore A/S as a key European sales representative specializing in the advanced fruit and vegetable processing sector.
