Micron Waste Technologies Inc. (“Micron” or the “Company”) (CSE:MWM, OTC:MICWF, Frankfurt:7FM2), announced that it has suspended development of the Cannavore™ waste digester system in light of changing market conditions. While Micron has made rapid progress in completing the alpha prototype development and demonstrated its capability to process cannabis waste and clean dischargeable water, a longer product development pathway was required to reach commercialization stage. The cannabis industry is not currently funding new technologies and this has resulted in a lower outlook on the commercial viability of the Cannavore™ system.

The Company will continue to focus on developing its Organivore™ organic food waste digester and effluent treatment systems, led by Micron founder and director, Dr. Bob Bhushan. The Board has taken this decision to refocus the company consistent with the Board’s commitment to act in the best interests of the Company and its shareholders and stakeholders. Information on the Company’s Organivore™ system can be found here: https://micronwaste.com/technology/organivore/.

Concurrently, the Board will actively seek to leverage the Company’s approximately $3M working capital and 2.5M shares of Palladium One Mining Inc. to review potential value-enhancing strategic acquisitions.

Intellectual Property Update
Micron is pleased to announce that it has filed preliminary trademark protection for the Pharmavore™ system, covering the treatment of waste containing drugs, pharmaceuticals, and illicit substances that are seized in transit by law enforcement. The Company is in the process of assembling a prototype Pharmavore™ unit for feasibility studies that will commence in Q1 of 2020.

Management Changes
The Company also announced today the resignations of Alfred Wong as President and Chief Executive Officer, and Cam Battley as Chair of the Audit Committee and as a member of the Board. The Company would like to thank Mr. Wong and Mr. Battley for their leadership and guidance during their tenure and wish them well. Effective January 2, 2020, Kal Malhi, the Chairman of the Board, will assume the position of interim President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company until a permanent replacement is appointed.

The Company is also pleased to announce the appointment of Michael Malana to the Board of Directors and Chair of the Audit Committee, effective immediately. Mr. Malana has over 15 years of experience in public markets overseeing administration, accounting, and financial services. Mr. Malana is currently CFO of Growmax Resources Corp (TSXV:GRO).

On behalf of the Board,

Kal Malhi

“Getting your standard processing license and being fully compliant at a federal level is critical in Canada, and we were successful in getting that done. Now we’re getting ready to launch our Keef line of beverages within the next 45 days,” Leone said. 

As a young company, Leone said BevCanna has only started, but it took a four-pronged approach to make sure that it is a revenue-generating company prepared for the opening of many jurisdictions for CBD-based products.

“We are blessed that we have a beautiful infrastructure of our own, a state-of-the-art bottling facility with a capacity of almost 200 million bottles per annum and a strong balance sheet of $55 million. We are in a strong position to scale and grow this company.”

BevCanna has received a Standard Processing License from Health Canada and is now fully authorized to begin production at its full-service, high-capacity beverage manufacturing facility. The company will begin production of its white-label products, number one US cannabis beverage brand Keef and its in-house beverages through licensed Canadian retailers, positioning the company to fully capitalize on the burgeoning Canadian cannabis-infused beverage sector.
