VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Oct. 13, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — EnWave Corporation (TSX-V:ENW | FSE:E4U) (“EnWave”, or the “Company”) announced today that it has signed a Technology Evaluation and License Option Agreement (the “Agreement”) with M/S Lalsai Dehy Foods (“LD Food”) to evaluate the potential commercial use of the Company’s Radiant Energy Vacuum (“REV™”) dehydration technology on a variety of vegetable, herbs, spices and dairy based products in India.
During the term of the Agreement, LD Food will rent a 10kW REV™ machine for intensive product development at its processing facility in Mahuva, Gujarat – an agricultural hub for onion production in India. If commercially viable ingredient and snack products are developed under the Agreement, LD Food will look to purchase REV™ machinery to commence commercial production at its BRC Global Standard, Gujarat facility.
The company currently has large-scale air-drying infrastructure installed for its existing product portfolio that includes a variety of onion, garlic, carrots and spice ingredient products. Utilizing REV™ technology, LD Food is looking to develop unique commercial scale prototypes and expand its product offering for domestic and international markets.
The expansion of EnWave’s global REV™ technology footprint into India further proves the significant value proposition for food producers seeking to launch new and innovative premium ingredient and snack food applications. EnWave has developed a comprehensive intellectual property portfolio with patents granted in numerous international markets and has licensed REV™ technology to more than forty-five companies in twenty-one countries worldwide.

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.

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 a drum-based system that dehydrates organic materials quickly and at low-cost, while maintaining high levels of nutrition, taste, texture and colour; and,
- 2. quantaREV® which is a tray-based system used for continuous, high-volume low-temperature drying.
