This seems to work on a combination of microwave heating and pressure to control the structure of the material in some kind of “black box” technology.

However the claims of the manufacturer EnWave Corporation of Canada that

compared with the industry standard, freeze drying technology, the new equipment cuts processing time to minutes rather than hours or days, cuts energy use by one third and capital costs by one sixth

make the equipment interesting.

The fact that the equipment is sold with a royalty income stream is also indicative of the company’s commitment to the technology.
