Vancouver and Delta, British Columbia – Micron Waste Technologies Inc., a developer of waste treatment systems for food and cannabis waste, has appointed Alfred Wong president and CEO, effective immediately. Wong succeeds CEO Rav Mlait.
“Alfred joined Micron as President in 2016 and has been instrumental in overseeing the development of the Company’s research and development from design to prototype,” said Kal Malhi, Cchairman.
“In his new role as president and CEO, he will oversee strategic growth initiatives with a focus on accelerating commercialization of our food and cannabis waste processing systems. He will also lead expansion into new product verticals for industries such as food processing, brewing and spirits, pulp and paper and biological pharmaceuticals.”
Micron’s food and Cannavore 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 regulatory-compliant greywater, which meets municipal discharge standards, can be safely discharged. Active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) in cannabis waste are denatured, preventing bio-accumulation in watersheds.
“Over the last year, the Micron team had achieved significant milestones in developing unique, world-class organic waste processing systems for industries with unmet waste challenges,” Wong said.
“I am honoured to lead the company forward as we transition to full-scale production and revenue generation.”
