Micron Waste strengthens business development, engineering and corporate capabilities

Ziba Hajizadeh, P.Eng. (2nd from left), recently promoted to VP, Engineering, with other Micron Waste R&D team members, including Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer, Dr. Bob Bhushan (2nd from right) in front of a Cannavore unit.

Micron Waste Technologies Inc., a leading developer of clean technology waste management systems, has announced the hiring and promotion of key management staff to build capabilities in business development, engineering and corporate relations. Micron's food and 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 treated regulatory-compliant greywater, which meets municipal discharge standards, can be safely discharged. Active Pharmaceutical Compounds (APIs) in cannabis waste are further biologically treat to denature cannabinoids present, keeping them out of watersheds where they can bio-accumulate.
