EnWave Signs Second Equipment Purchase Agreement with Illinois-Based Cannabis Royalty Partner for Another 120kW REV(TM) Dehydration Machine

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Dec. 30, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EnWave Corporation (TSX-V:ENW | FSE:E4U) (“EnWave”, or the "Company") announces today that it has signed a second equipment purchase agreement to sell a second 120kW Radiant Energy Vacuum (“REV™”) dehydration machine to a leading Illinois-based cannabis company (the “MSO”) that has operations in multiple U.S. States. The MSO signed a royalty-bearing commercial license agreement (the “License”) with EnWave and purchased its first 120kW REV™ machine in March 2021.

Since adopting REV™ technology for the drying of premium cannabis, the MSO has been using EnWave’s proprietary Terpene Max™ drying protocol, which offers a fast, gentle drying method that removes moisture homogenously from cannabis. EnWave’s Terpene Max™ program allows for precise temperature control of the cannabis material at low temperatures below the point of decarboxylation. When compared to other drying methods, REV™ protocols can be customized to improve terpene retention while preserving equivalent or higher cannabinoids. Cannabis flowers dried using the Terpene Max™ program yield on average 10% more retained terpenes than room or rack dried flower. Bioburden is also materially reduced when using REV™ drying protocols. REV™ technology allows cannabis produces to reduce drying times from multiple days to less than two hours, while maintaining the quality of the flower.

The MSO has been producing REV™-dried premium cannabis flower on its first 120kW REV™ system since September 2021. With the purchase of this second 120kW REV™ system, the MSO will double its royalty-bearing drying capacity of premium, smokable cannabis product. Under the terms of the License, the MSO will pay EnWave a royalty based on the finished weight of dried cannabis processed using the installed REV™ systems. A single 120kW REV™ machine can process approximately 200lbs of wet cannabis biomass per hour, yielding approximately 45lbs of the dried finished product. That translates to over 200,000 lbs of dried cannabis produced per year. EnWave’s REV™ equipment can be manufactured for GACP compliance and GMP upon request.
