About EnWaveEnWave Corporation, a leading technology company based in Vancouver, has developed a Radiant Energy Vacuum (“REV ™”) – an innovative and proprietary method for the precise dewatering of organic material. EnWave has developed patent pending methods to uniformly dry and decontaminate cannabis through the use of REV ™ technology, shortening the time between harvest and high quality marketable cannabis products.
The commercial viability of REV ™ technology has been demonstrated and is growing rapidly in several industry verticals in the food and pharmaceutical industries, including legal cannabis. EnWave’s strategy is to enter into paid commercial licenses with innovative and disruptive companies in several verticals for the use of REV ™ technology. To date, it has signed more than forty licenses generating royalties in twenty countries around the world.

EnWave introduced REV ™ as a disruptive dehydration platform in the food and cannabis industries: faster and cheaper than freeze drying, with better end product quality than air drying or spray drying. EnWave currently offers two separate REV ™ business platforms:
- nutraREV® which is a drum system that dehydrates organics quickly and at low cost, while maintaining high levels of nutrition, taste, texture and color; and,
- quantaREV®, which is a tray system used for continuous high volume drying at low temperature.
