VANCOUVER — EnWave Corporation announced on Feb. 9 that it has signed a third Equipment Purchase Agreement with Natural Nutrition SpA d.b.a. Nanuva Ingredients for Nanuva’s operations in Chile. This EPA calls for the construction and commissioning of an additional two 10kW Radiant Energy Vacuum dehydration machines. Nanuva currently uses REV™ technology to produce fruit snacks, ingredients and powders that are sold on a business-to-business basis internationally. The additional two 10kW REV™ machines will significantly increase Nanuva’s commercial manufacturing capacity, allowing them to meet their growing market demand.
Nanuva first entered a royalty-bearing commercial license to use EnWave’s dehydration technology to process premium South American fruits in 2014. Over the duration of this partnership, Nanuva has steadily increased its REV™ manufacturing capacity. Nanuva anticipates additional growth in the coming years and expects to expand upon the five 10kW machines they plan to have in operation by mid 2021.
Nanuva produces a broad portfolio of fruit products that includes apple, blackberry, blueberry, and pineapple, as well as superfoods such as maquiberry, and rosehip. Nanuva has experienced growing product demand for export into the U.S. market and gained new contract manufacturing opportunities, resulting in this need for additional REV™ capacity.
In recognition of increasing demand for small scale REV™ machines, EnWave had previously commenced production of a number of 10kW units. Two of these units will now be dedicated and completed for the Nanuva EPA with anticipated delivery and commissioning in late Spring 2021.
To date, EnWave has signed 14 royalty-bearing commercial licenses for the processing of premium agricultural products in 12 countries around the world.
In total, EnWave now has 41 active royalty-bearing licenses in place with food, cannabis and pharmaceutical companies for the use of REV™ technology.
