EnWave Signs Commercial Royalty-Bearing License and Equipment Lease Agreement with a Swiss Medical CBD Company
November 26, 2019, 6:00 am
EnWave Corporation (TSX-V:ENW | FSE:E4U) (“EnWave”, or the “Company”), today announced signing a royalty-bearing commercial license agreement (the “License”) and equipment lease agreement (the “Lease”) with a Medical Cannabidiol (“CBD”) Company based in Switzerland (the “Royalty Partner”). The License grants the Royalty Partner a non-exclusive right to process medicinal-grade hemp for cannabidiol CBD extraction in Switzerland using the Company’s patented Radiant Energy Vacuum (“REV™”) technology. Under the terms of the Lease, the Royalty Partner has committed to lease a 10kW REV™ machine for an initial term of six months.
This is the seventh REVTM license EnWave has issued world-wide for licensed cannabis and hemp producers but the first in the European medicinal hemp market. Given the increased rigour and processing requirements for the medicinal market, this License further validates REV™ technology in the hemp and cannabis space and acts as a foothold for further adoption of REV™ technology throughout continental Europe for the drying of medicinal-grade hemp.
Switzerland is one of the most advanced countries in Europe concerning the legalization of CBD consumption and strongly recognizes the beneficial properties of CBD as a medicinal product for pain relief. Under the terms of the License, the Royalty Partner will pay EnWave a quarterly royalty based on the number of dried grams produced in the REV™ machinery.
EnWave Corporation, a Vancouver-based advanced technology company, has developed Radiant Energy Vacuum (“REV™”) – an innovative, proprietary method for the precise dehydration of organic materials. EnWave has further developed patent-pending methods for uniformly drying and decontaminating cannabis through the use of REV™ technology, shortening the time from harvest to marketable cannabis products.
REV™ technology’s commercial viability has been demonstrated and is growing rapidly across several market verticals in the food, and pharmaceutical sectors including legal cannabis. EnWave’s strategy is to sign royalty-bearing commercial licenses with innovative, disruptive companies in multiple verticals for the use of REV™ technology. The company has signed over thirty royalty-bearing licenses to date. In addition to these licenses, EnWave established a Limited Liability Corporation, NutraDried Food Company, LLC, to manufacture, market and sell all-natural dairy snack products in the United States, including the Moon Cheese® brand.
EnWave has introduced REV™ as a disruptive dehydration platform in the food and cannabis sectors: faster and cheaper than freeze drying, with better end product quality than air drying or spray drying.
EnWave currently offers two distinct commercial REV™ platforms:
- nutraREV® which is used in the food industry to dry food products quickly and at low-cost, while maintaining high levels of nutrition, taste, texture and colour; and
- quantaREV® which is used for continuous, high-volume low-temperature drying.
