EnWave Announces New Significant Patent Approval

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - February 06, 2015) - EnWave Corporation (TSX VENTURE: ENW) (FRANKFURT: E4U) ("EnWave", or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company has been granted a significant Radiant Energy Vacuum ("REV™") dehydration technology patent in Canada. The patent protects the improved modular design of EnWave's nutraREV® machinery, which is the most commercially advanced platform in the Company's technology portfolio. EnWave has sold or received purchase orders for five (5) nutraREV® dehydrators based on this design in the past 10 months. The modular nutraREV® patent has also been filed for in the United States of America and Europe.

EnWave's patent suite consists of eighteen patents that have been filed for through the international Patent Cooperation Treaty process. Thirteen of those patents have been granted, many in multiple global jurisdictions. The modular nutraREV® patent approval further strengthens the Company's intellectual property and builds on the recent momentum generated in late 2014 from the approval of both patents protecting the method of dehydrating vaccines and patents protecting the quantaREV® machinery design.

EnWave is continuing to pursue additional patent protection for new innovations as they arise.

About EnWave
EnWave Corporation is a Vancouver-based industrial technology company developing commercial applications for its proprietary REV™ dehydration technology. EnWave aims to sign royalty-bearing commercial licenses with leading food and pharmaceutical companies for the use of its revolutionary technology. Thus far the Company has signed twelve royalty-bearing licenses, opening up eight distinct market sectors for commercialization with companies. In addition to these licenses, EnWave has formed a Limited Liability Partnership, NutraDried LLP, to develop, manufacture, market and sell all-natural cheese snack products in the United States under the Moon Cheese® brand.

EnWave is introducing REV™ as a new dehydration standard in the food and biological material sectors: potentially faster and cheaper than freeze drying, with better end product quality than air drying or spray drying. EnWave currently has three commercial REV™ platforms: nutraREV® 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; powderREV® is used for the bulk dehydration of food cultures, probiotics and fine biochemicals such as enzymes below the freezing point and quantaREV® is used for continuous, high-volume low-temperature drying. Two additional platforms, bioREV® and freezeREV®, are being developed as new methods to stabilize and dehydrate biopharmaceuticals such as vaccines and antibodies.
