Vancouver, July 22, 2019 – Micron Waste Technologies Inc. (“Micron” or the “Company”) (CSE: MWM, OTC: MICWF, Frankfurt: 7FM2), a leading developer of waste treatment systems for cannabis and food waste, has announced that its shares are now eligible for electronic clearing and settlement in the United States through the Depository Trust Company (“DTC”). DTC is a subsidiary of the Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation, a U.S. company that manages the electronic clearing and settlement of publicly traded companies. DTC services provide cost benefits for investors and brokers trading Canadian securities in the United States.
“Micron intends to become a unique ancillary supplier to the rapidly growing American cannabis sector. In particular, Micron aims to service multi-states operators expanding their cultivation footprints and producing more waste under stricter regulatory and environmental oversight,” said Alfred Wong, Micron President and CEO. “DTC eligibility is a natural evolution for our Company – our shareholders will benefit from increased liquidity and a larger shareholder base in addition to greater convenience and execution speeds.”
Micron’s Cannavore waste system prototype continues to meet milestones at Aurora Cannabis Inc.’s Mountain facility near Calgary, where is it undergoing full throughput processing and stress testing. The world’s first closed-loop cannabis waste processing system was designed to Aurora’s specifications to be a clean technology solution to process organic waste generated from the growth and cultivation of cannabis, while mitigating concerns about the potential environmental impact.
Micron currently has additional Cannavore systems under construction, working with strategic partner BC Research Inc. Micron’s Organivore™ food waste system prototype is currently being upgraded with new technology developed for the Cannavore.
