Vancouver based organic waste treatment specialist, Micron Waste Technologies Inc. (CSE:MWM) (OTC:MICWF) (Frankfurt:7FM2), has engaged the services of engineering consultancy, BC Research Inc. to accelerate the commercialisation process of its waste digester technology for the cannabis industry.
Micron explained that it has developed a new technology, based on aerobic digestion and subsequent treatment, that converts organic waste into clean water that meets municipal effluent discharge standards.
The company said that the effluent from currently available digester-based treatment systems of organic waste does not meet municipal discharge standards and requires further treatment.
Many organisations that generate organic waste are said to currently use municipal landfill sites for their organic waste, which is costly and has a negative impact on the environment.
According to Micron the merits of its technology have been demonstrated with a grocery supermarket chain located in British Columbia, Canada, and it has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with the group
