VANCOUVER, BC — Micron Waste Technologies Inc. announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Micron Technologies Inc., a manufacturer of personal protective equipment (PPE) in Canada, has received and installed its 3-ply mask-manufacturing machine and associated equipment.
The Company, through Micron Technologies, will manufacture face masks pursuant to its Medical Device Establishment License (MDEL) from Health Canada. The MDEL permits Micron Technologies to manufacture Class I products, which include face masks, at the Company’s facility in Delta, British Columbia. The MDEL is issued by the Minister of Health in accordance with the Medical Device Regulations of the Food and Drugs Act.
The company has also received its N95 mask-manufacturing machine and expects production to begin in early October. Additionally, the company plans to send N95 mask samples to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health for certification to be able to sell medical grade N95 masks.
The MDEL approval represents a strategic milestone for Micron. Mr. Kal Malhi, CEO of Micron said in a prepared statement, “We believe that the supply of face masks will remain constrained as governments and corporations mandate masks be worn in public spaces, the workplace, and in educational centres.”
