EnWave Signs Technology Evaluation and License Option Agreement with a Top Canadian Cannabis Producer, Granting an Exclusive Option to use Radiant Energy Vacuum Technology in a European Country

EnWave Corporation (TSX-V:ENW | FSE:E4U) (“EnWave”, or the "Company" – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AyKTfx_H0Tk&t=60s ) announced today that the Company has signed a Technology Evaluation and License Option Agreement (“TELOA”) with one of Canada’s largest licensed cannabis producers (the “LP”) to enable the LP to evaluate EnWave’s patented Radiant Energy Vacuum (“REV™”) technology for rapid decontamination and dehydration of cannabis.

Under the terms of the TELOA, EnWave has granted the LP a six-month term to evaluate and refine processes using REV™ for cannabis decontamination and dehydration, and an exclusive option to license REV™ for processing cannabis in a country in Europe. The LP will rent a pilot-scale REV™ machine during the term of the TELOA to facilitate the evaluation of EnWave’s technology. All other terms of the TELOA are confidential.

The TELOA extends EnWave’s continued success in pursuing additional opportunities to serve the rapidly growing global medical and recreational cannabis market.

About EnWave

EnWave Corporation, a Vancouver-based advanced technology company, has developed Radiant Energy Vacuum (“REV™”) – an innovative, proprietary method for the precise dehydration of organic materials. 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 industry leaders in multiple verticals for the use of REV™ technology. The company has signed over twenty royalty-bearing licenses to date, opening up nine distinct market sectors for commercialization of new and innovative products. In addition to these licenses, EnWave has formed a Limited Liability Company, NutraDried Food Company LLC, to develop, manufacture, market and sell all-natural cheese snack products in the United States under the Moon Cheese® brand.

EnWave has introduced REV™ as the new dehydration standard in the food and biological material sectors: faster and cheaper than freeze drying, with better end product quality than air drying or spray drying. EnWave currently has three commercial REV™ platforms:

  1. nutraREV® which is used in the food industry to dry food products quickly and at low-cost, while maintaining high levels of nutrition, taste, texture and colour;
  2. powderREV® which is used for the bulk dehydration of food cultures, probiotics and fine biochemicals such as enzymes below the freezing point, and
  3. quantaREV® which is used for continuous, high-volume low-temperature drying.

An additional platform, freezeREV®, is being developed as a new method to stabilize and dehydrate biopharmaceuticals such as vaccines and antibodies. More information about EnWave is available at www.enwave.net.

One company, one name – worldwide

LAPP, the expert in connection technology, is developing its brand. By using the name LAPP – in capital letters and with no additions – the family company is underlining its international alignment and positioning as a leading supplier of connection solutions. In future, national subsidiaries and departments will all operate under the name LAPP with no additions. The message is clear – one name and one logo for the entire company, offering its customers the same outstanding service at all times, wherever they are. The new brand identity will be on display for the first time at the Hanover Trade Fair. In future, the family name will represent the company’s fundamental values – focus on success, focus on customers, innovation and family. 

The new branding is LAPP’s response to the fact that what was originally a cable manufacturer has developed into a provider of connection solutions. Name affixes such as “Kabel”, “Cable” or “Cablo”, which have been used in many countries since the company was founded in 1959, will disappear. In recent years, LAPP has successfully developed into a provider of integrated solutions and branded products for numerous industries and applications; as evidenced by the positive results for the past financial year which saw a 13.9 per cent increase of global turnover. “Now is the right time to have a uniform name worldwide and a unified logo to link everything together,” explains Chairman Andreas Lapp. Customers and their needs were at the heart of the decision. “These days it is no longer so important in which country our customers buy our products and where they are delivered to – we’ve been working as an international team for a long time. It is a logical progression for our external identity to reflect that. And what’s more: that is exactly what our customers expect”, Andreas Lapp continues. 

The change is a logical step in the company’s development but is also a joint decision by the Lapp family – LAPP is still LAPP. This was shown by the change of generations that occurred in 2017, when Matthias Lapp, a member of the third generation of the founding Lapp family, took over the role of CEO for Europe, Africa, the Middle East and South America.

Now cooling on clothes is only activated when needed

The Swiss textile innovator HeiQ launches an upgraded version of its popular dynamic cooling technology HeiQ Smart Temp. Based on an instant cooling hydro functional polymer, this patent pending technology provides activated cooling to the wearer for enhanced performance and thermal comfort. Inhouse thermoregulation performance measurements of a treated fabric revealed a 1.5°C to 2.5°C (2.7°F to 4.5°F) cooler skin temperature compared to an untreated fabric. During the Performance Days Munich, the upgraded HeiQ Smart Temp technology can be experienced on high-tech sports fabrics by Pontetorto and Tessitura Taiana Virgilio.

From its launch back in 2011 until today, the intelligent thermoregulation technology HeiQ Smart Temp has grown to one of the market leading dynamic cooling technologies. More than 50 major brands globally on more than 500 million garments use HeiQ’s most popular technology in their products spanning the application scope from basic apparel and sportswear to home textiles. HeiQ Smart Temp is used as the differentiating technology in Hanes’ X-Temp program, Dick’s Sporting Goods’ Second Skin range, Stance’s Feel 360 socks collection, Dickies’ Temp-iQ range and BekaertDeslee’s mattress ticking goods – just to name a few. This outstanding achievement spurred HeiQ’s research and development team on even more to move the previous product version to the next level.

Now, the Swiss textile innovator releases the new addition to the HeiQ Smart Temp family: HeiQ Adaptive AC-06. This patent pending technology version equips the sports enthusiast with activated cooling and enhanced performance and thermal comfort. Upgraded HeiQ Smart Temp interacts with the wearer, helping to lower the skin’s temperature when it needs it most. The innovation is based on an instant cooling hydro functional polymer that is activated when the skin temperature exceeds a range between 28°C and 32°C (82.4°F and 89.6°F) and deactivated once cooling is complete. Two actions are used to keep the body at the optimum performance temperature: Even before the first sign of sweat on fabric, a melting action is activated, sending instant-cooling impulse directly to the skin. And when the heat is really turned up, a vaporizing action transports sweat away from the body, reducing the skin’s temperature by 1.5°C to 2.5°C (2.7°F to 4.5°F) compared to an untreated fabric sample. Overall, the wearer feels cool, comfortable and focused to perform better – even in the most uncomfortable of conditions.

Inhouse thermoregulation performance testing has revealed high reduction rates of the skin temperature measured over a certain time by utilizing a thermal imaging infrared (FLIR) camera. The FLIR camera set-up imitated the human skin while sweating at different levels of activity. “In contrast to the Dynamic Evaporation testing, the FLIR camera measurement allows us to quickly though accurately visualize the temperature change of a fabric treated with HeiQ Smart Temp, for example compared to an untreated fabric sample,” says HeiQ’s Chief Technology Officer Walter Nassl.

During Performance Days in Munich the upgraded technology will be presented on high-tech sports fabrics by HeiQ’s Italian partner mills Pontetorto and Tessitura Taiana Virgilio. Both fabrics with upgraded HeiQ Smart Temp have been picked for the PD Forum in the “Cooling Technologies focus topic”. Further, these two fabrics are also going to be available soon in HeiQ’s fabric library for ordering and configurating online through the fast fabric sampling tool “heiq it!”. HeiQ welcomes all visitors to learn more about the upgraded HeiQ Smart Temp technology at their booth (Lounge 5/Hall 5) or during their workshops (Room 13/2nd Floor) at Performance Days Munich from 18-19 April 2018.

Brand staging with a focus on food trends

For the market leader Handtmann, the Anuga FoodTec 2018 had a clear central focus: the trade fair visitors and the future market opportunities of the food industry. Where is the trend headed and how should companies position themselves in the future?

From the perspective of Handtmann, nutrition today covers many elements, including individuality, lifestyle, self-optimisation, enjoyment and much more. In this playground for new food products, the company sees a chance for food producers and customers to tap into new potential markets.

Creative, trendy food or established classics?
The message communicated from the spacious, back-lit fabric graphics makes it clear that anyone who values a premium but also fruitful implementation of his/her food products will find a willing partner in Handtmann.

The displayed machines, which featured the most modern food technology and techniques, stood testament to this. They framed the innovative core messages and the inviting communication zone of the trade fair booth. The highlight for the visitors was the operational show kitchen, which served new food trends to taste as well as classics to enjoy.

After an increase in the overall area of the trade fair as well as the double-digit growth in exhibiting companies (+13 %) was clear in advance of the event, Anuga FoodTec 2018 was also able to achieve a significant visitor increase of almost 11%.

Handtmann succeeded in taking advantage of these positive conditions. With KECK’s emotive trade fair concept, over 20% more leads could be generated in comparison to Anuga FoodTec 2015.

NEW baut die Lade-Infrastruktur für E-Mobilität in der Region weiter aus

Das gilt besonders für die rund 20.000 Pendler, die laut Bundesagentur für Arbeit täglich aus Mönchengladbach und den Kreisen Viersen und Heinsberg in Richtung Düsseldorfer Innenstadt fahren. Die Landeshauptstadt ist akut von Fahrverboten bedroht. Voraussetzung für die Anschaffung eines Elektroautos ist jedoch eine funktionierende Lade-Infrastruktur in der Umgebung.

Die NEW treibt den Ausbau dieser Infrastruktur voran und wird bis Ende des Jahres 30 öffentliche Ladesäulen aufstellen. An diesen können Autofahrer noch bis mindestens Ende 2018 kostenfrei Strom laden. Neun dieser 30 E-Ladesäulen sind bereits in Betrieb, eine zwölfte wird in Kürze im Kreis Viersen installiert. Zurzeit prüft die NEW, ob sie mithilfe von Mitteln aus dem NRW-Landeshaushalt weitere 100 Ladesäulen aufstellen kann.

Hier ein Überblick über die bereits existierenden Ladesäulen der NEW:

In Mönchengladbach steht eine Ladesäule der NEW an der Heinrich-Sturm-Straße hinter dem Hauptbahnhof. Weitere zwei Ladesäulen befinden sich auf dem Gelände der NEW an der Odenkirchener Straße. Dort steht zudem eine Schnelladesäule.

Im Kreis Viersen findet sich eine Ladesäule an der Gartenstraße in Schwalmtal, in Viersen vor dem Straßenverkehrsamt und in Niederkrüchten an der Mittelstraße. Zudem eröffnet die NEW in Kürze eine weitere Ladesäule an der Willicher Straße in Tönisvorst.

Im Kreis Heinsberg finden E-Autofahrer je eine NEW-Ladesäule in Heinsberg und Geilenkirchen und zwei in Erkelenz. In Heinsberg können E-Autofahrer an der Valkenburger Straße laden, in Geilenkirchen am Markt und in Erkelenz am Konrad-Adenauer-Platz und am Johannismarkt.

Der Strom, der an den Zapfsäulen eingespeist wird, ist zu 100 Prozent CO2-frei erzeugt. „Elektromobilität spielt beim Thema Luftreinhaltung eine bedeutende Rolle. Ich fahre selber elektrisch und habe damit sehr gute Erfahrungen gemacht. Ein weiterer Ausbau der Ladeinfrastruktur macht die Anschaffung eines Elektroautos noch attraktiver und ist ein Pluspunkt für unsere Region“, betont Dr. Hans Peter Schlegelmilch, Aufsichtsratsvorsitzender der NEW AG.

Auch intern ist die NEW zurzeit dabei, die Ladeinfrastruktur für ihre über 30 E- und Hybridfahrzeuge auszubauen. „Wir nutzen die Erfahrungen, die wir selber mit der Umrüstung unserer Flotte machen, um den Kommunen in unserem Versorgungsgebiet bei der Umstellung auf E-Mobilität zu helfen“, erklärt Frank Kindervatter, Vorstandsvorsitzender der NEW AG.

Thanks to our application, there is finally enough time to strategically manage the company and actively shape its future, instead of grappling with outdated processes and tools,” says Daniele Tedesco, CEO of Apliqo AG.

New: Apliqo C&C (Financial Consolidation & Close)

A completely new addition to Apliqo’s product portfolio is Apliqo C&C, an extension to the well established UPM Suite that uses Apliqo UX as a front end tool just like all applications in this product family. Apliqo C&C is an application in the field of Unified Performance Management and geared towards the legally required reporting and disclosure management – or towards consolidated financial statements and financial consolidation. Thanks to a centralized data source and flexible data processing, financial statements can be drawn up significantly quicker and easier than with conventional applications. Apliqo C&C reduces the complexity of the financial consolidation process, gives finance managers more time for the financial statements and eliminates error-prone processes. The application allows a high degree of automation, process-controlled workflows as well as stringent controls and detailed audit trails in order to modernize conventional Group consolidation approaches. Predefined best-practice workflow processes give employees greater security, so that this Apliqo application can also be used efficiently without any IT skills. It is possible to master complexity with Apliqo C&C, so that the financial statements and reporting process is accelerated across all business units.

Walther Trowal opens the „North American Tech & Training Centre“

To cope with the increasing business volume in the Americas and to better serve the American customers in the field of surface finishing and preparation, Walther Trowal is expanding its sales branch in Grand Rapids, established in 2005, with additional manpower and a process development lab. Recently the Walther Trowal LLC has officially opened its “North American Tech & Training Center”.

The company, initially established as a sales office, has become an operation with its own test center, after-sales service activities and a sizable warehouse for compounds, media and spare parts. Effective immediately two recently hired application and sales engineers, stationed in Grand Rapids, are now supporting the already existing nine distributors in the US and Mexico, including our sales office in Querétaro, Mexico.

Moreover, the newly established process development lab, equipped with a range of different finishing machines, now offers American customers the possibility to test the Walther Trowal equipment with their work pieces directly in the United States and to optimize their finishing processes.

Ken Raby, Vice President and General Manager of the Walther Trowal LLC, is now in a position to serve his North-American customers even better: „We consider close proximity to our customers as essential to our future success. With our expanding sales and technical base in Grand Rapids we can adapt our processes and systems much better and, especially, much faster to the requirements of the American users. Especially in the field of mass finishing it is essential to develop and optimize the various finishing processes for our customers through processing trials under manufacturing conditions in our test lab”.  

The new „Tech & Training Centre“ is also equipped with a lab for coating technology. This allows the customers to test various coating methods and develop the right process for their coating requirements with the “Trowal Coating” technology.

Christoph Cruse, general sales manager at Walther Trowal in Haan, explains why the company is expanding its presence in North-America: „The North-American market is somewhat different from Europe – Especially in the United States the automobile industry is still a key player, but is subject to enormous cost pressures. That is why it is essential for us to offer our customers fast and competent service. Long reaction or downtimes are no longer acceptable! In addition, we also see a tremendous potential in the rapidly expanding aerospace industry and medical engineering.“

In Latin America Walther Trowal has also expanded its presence with the recently opened sales office in Queretaro, Mexico. The local staff is supported by the knowhow and service of the colleagues in Grand Rapids.

The capacity of the new, large warehouse ensures that the Walther Trowal LLC can offer short delivery times for equipment and consumables. The mass finishing, shot blasting and coating equipment as well as the plastic finishing media are still supplied from the Walther Trowal headquarters in Germany. Ceramic media continue to be manufactured at the plant in Stoke-on-Trent, Great Britain.
