Introducing The Envirowave Process

Finding new and innovative processes to protect our environment.

Protection of valuable water, air, and land resources is one of the highest priority activities in industrialized countries on the planet. The Company views its mission in society as developing and applying innovative, simple, and cost-effective technologies worldwide to address the recycling of waste streams to environmentally-acceptable end products.

 Envirowave Energy, LLC completed of the testing phase for its commercial microwave-based scrap tire and mixed plastics system on November 16, 2009. The unit shown is capable of processing 50 to 60 tons of scrap tires or mixed plastics daily. Other units are capable of processing of 70 to 80 tons per day.

Envirowave Energy's cost effective and environmentally acceptable enabling technologies include:

· A continuous microwave based drying and sterilizing technologies permit a wide variety of industries to meet US EPA standards for pathogen destruction in biosolids and agricultural waste streams.

· A microwave-based "Destruct" technology providing a viable and immediate solution to the demands of the EPA for the treatment and destruction of hazardous waste contamination.

· A scrap automobile tire recycling system producing carbon black, steel, hydrocarbon
carbon fuels, including hydrogen, while mitigating one of the pressing pollution problems of the century.

The concept of utilizing microwaves in commercial applications was the outgrowth of research conducted in the mid 1990's by John Novak into the use of microwaves in the molecular destruction of organic compounds. Original research encompassed the breakdown of rubber, plastics and scrap tires into commercially marketable constituent products. When Mr. Novak was approached by a potential customer with the idea of drying paper pulp for the purposes of volumetric reduction, he quickly realized the commercial viability of such a process. At the same time as the paper pulp evaluation was underway, an investigation into the drying of bio-solids (sludge from waste water facilities) was launched based upon his earlier studies using shipboard waste from a major cruise line. Mr. Novak subsequently applied for and received the patent for the utilization of microwaves in processing organic materials and for his design of commercial microwave apparatus.

As an outgrowth of the two general microwave process applications (drying and molecular destruction) many other types of materials have been evaluated for processing in the microwave units and are considered commercially viable processes. Examples of these materials and processes are the destruction of PCB's and PAH's; paper mill black liquor reduction; grain drying; shipboard waste processing; masonry and brick drying; curing of lumber and wood products; remediation of petroleum contaminated soils; reduction and recycling of plastics and rubber products and medical waste disposal. Medical waste & biomedical waste consists of all waste materials generated at health care facilities including, hospitals, clinics, offices of physicians, dentists, and vets, blood banks, home health care facilities and labs.
