Micron Waste Overview

Micron’s food and cannabis waste treatment systems are industrial-grade organic waste processers which pulverize and render organic waste in combination with a proprietary blend of microbes and enzymes designed and developed by Micron. Importantly, as part of Micron’s full-system waste treatment platform, effluent from the systems is further treated to derive clean greywater which can be reused in industrial or agricultural operation. Alternatively, the treated regulatory-compliant greywater, which meets municipal discharge standards, can be safely discharged. Active Pharmaceutical Compounds (APIs) in cannabis waste are further biologically treat to denature cannabinoids present, keeping them out of watersheds where they can bio-accumulate.

Micron’s waste management systems also use advanced computer science for remote real-time diagnostics monitoring and control. The comprehensive systems have been engineered to operate on-site where needed in a contained unit which does not emit sound or smell, while exempting customers from the need to truck, incinerate or landfill methane-producing waste.

Micron’s Cannavore™ waste system was engineered based on proven technology used by the Company in its food waste digester unit, which can be used for large-scale food waste processing by municipalities, Quick Service Restaurants (QSRs) and supermarkets. The Cannavore’s design and development resulted from a collaboration with Aurora Cannabis Inc. (TSE:ACB) to develop a clean technology solution to process waste generated from the cultivation of cannabis.

Micron’s Cannavore Digester and Organic Waste Digester units has been awarded an Industrial Design Certificate of Registration from the Canadian Intellectual Property Office (CIPO), with patent pending in the United States.
