Plastic-Recycling Pyrowave is Named in the 2017 Global Cleantech 100 Ones to Watch List

Montréal, Québec, Canada – November 7, 2017: Pyrowave Inc, a pioneer in plastic recycling using modular microwave technology, today announced it was named in the 2017 Global Cleantech 100 Ones to Watch list, produced by Cleantech Group (CTG).   The GCT100 Ones to Watch list seeks to highlight a group of up-and-coming companies that are catching the eye of leading investors and corporates in the market. The companies made the top 250 in this year’s Global Cleantech 100 program and carry pockets of strong support among the GCT100’s Expert Panel, albeit they did not have quite enough market support to make the 9th edition of the Global Cleantech 100 list itself (which will be published on January 22, 2018). As such, these companies represent this year’s Ones to Watch. “The Global Cleantech 100 program is our annual in-depth research exercise to identify the innovation companies leading players in the market are most excited by right now,” said CTG’s CEO, Richard Youngman. “By the nature of the list, the Ones to Watch truly represent the next cadre of exciting disruptive companies.”   “Plastic waste is becoming a central preoccupation due to its impact on our oceans, land and more importantly on how we use our resources”, said Jocelyn Doucet, CEO of Pyrowave. “This year was a turning point after 8 years of intense development as we gained a lot of attention and visibility internationally with our first commercial scale unit in operation. Being the recipient of the 2017 Cleantech Group Ones-to-Watch is crowning a remarkable year of successes and will help us continue transforming the plastic recycling industry to make our world better.”   This year, a record number of nominations for the annual Global Cleantech 100 list were received: 12,300 distinct companies from 61 countries. These companies were weighted and scored to create a short list of 312 companies, with these nominees reviewed by the 86 members of Cleantech Group’s Expert Panel. The Ones to Watch list, a sister list to the annual Global Cleantech 100 list, is created from the top 250 of the shortlist. To qualify for either list, companies must be independent, for-profit cleantech companies that are not listed on any major stock exchange. The complete list of the Global Cleantech 100 Ones to Watch list was revealed on November 7, 2017.

Plastic-recycling Pyrowave founders named to Canada’s Clean50 for 2018 in the Primary Resources Category

MONTREAL, QC – Thursday, September 21st, 2017 – Pyrowave is proud to announce that its team of founders Jocelyn Doucet, Jean-Philippe Laviolette and Jamal Chaouki were named to Canada’s Clean50 for 2018 in the Primary Resources category. Pyrowave is leading a worldwide trend towards improving resource efficiency and closing the loop on post-consumer plastic waste. The Pyrowave team started developing the first commercial technology using catalytic microwave depolymerisation in early 2010 through a research contract with Polytechnique Montreal. Eight years later, the technology is a high power microwave reactor producing the highest yields and best energy performance ever seen in the industry, enabling a high percentage of discarded plastics to be repurposed as brand new plastic. With this third version of the machine now in operation, Pyrowave is now selling the world’s first recycled monomer to the largest companies in the world: The first time that a commercial technology can depolymerize plastics after their use and return it back into virgin product. “Canada’s Clean50 Awards are announced annually by Delta Management Group and the Clean50 organization to recognize those 50 individuals or small teams, from 16 different categories, who have done the most to advance the cause of sustainability and clean capitalism in Canada over the past 2 years.” says Gavin Pitchford, CEO of Delta Management Group. Pyrowave team is extremely honored to demonstrate that closing the loop not only improves resource efficiency and global emissions but is also creating high quality jobs in the new circular economy. Jocelyn Doucet will be amongst approximately 120 past and incoming Clean50 Honourees meeting on Thursday September 28th at the “Clean50 Summit 7.0” on Toronto Island, to spend a day amongst peers and colleagues tackling common sustainability challenges”. To see the Canada’s Ressource Category Clean50 see here About Pyrowave Pyrowave is currently the leader in Catalytic Microwave Depolymerization with its unique patented microwave technology that unzips plastics back into their initial constituents. Only 8% of plastics generated today are recycled – yet the costs to haul, store, sort and process plastics are enormous. Using patented Catalytic Microwave Depolymerization (CMD), Pyrowave places small, modular units directly onsite at recycling facilities and at producers of plastic waste. Pyrowave has one machine in operation producing the world’s first Recycled Styrene Monomer (RSM) from post-consumer polystyrene waste that is sold to large polymer companies. Pyrowave’s technology enhances the rate and the range of recyclable materials, reduce logistics costs and produce higher value end products from waste plastics – products such as recycled wax, oil and monomers. Pyrowave has a growing impact on the environment by promoting resource efficiency. Its technology will reduce waste landfilling, waste incineration and waste hauling via a net positive energy process. www.pyrowave.com About Delta Management Group / Canada’s Clean50: Leading sustainability and clean tech search firm Delta Management Group in 2011 founded, and remains the steward of the Canada’s Clean50 awards, created to annually identify, recognize and connect 50 sustainability leaders from every sector of Canadian endeavor, in order to facilitate understanding, collaboration and innovation in the fight to keep climate change impacts below 1.5 degrees.
