EnWave Signs Technology Evaluation and License Option Agreement with Moleciwl Cyf
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Aug. 16, 2023 (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 Moleciwl Cyf, a Welsh toll-manufacturing start-up that will provide value-added processing and drying services to fruit and vegetable growers across the United Kingdom.
During the term of the Agreement, Moleciwl Cyf will lease a pilot-scale vacuum-microwave machine to facilitate in-house product development, and market-testing for domestically-grown dried fruit and vegetable products destined for snack and ingredient applications. If the technology evaluation is successful, the Agreement provides Moleciwl Cyf with the right to license EnWave’s Radiant Energy Vacuum (“REV™”) technology, the Company’s proprietary vacuum-microwave platform, to process fruit and vegetable products in Wales.
EnWave has licensed its technology to more than fifty companies globally, with many licensed partners successfully using REV™ drying machinery to produce high-quality fruit and vegetable products. REV™ technology enables controlled, homogeneous, low-temperature removal of moisture from food materials, allowing for high retention of nutrients, natural flavor, bright color and the creation of unique textures.
