BEDFORD, NS, CANADA, September 21, 2023 / -- Sixth Wave Innovations Inc. (CSE:SIXW) (OTC:SIXWF) (FSE:AHUH) (“Sixth Wave”, “SIXW” or the “Company”), a world leader in molecular imprinting technology, announced today the granting of two additional patents for its molecular imprinted polymers for mining applications have issued recently. The first was by the Uzbekistani patent office, for molecularly imprinted polymer for the extraction of lithium, mercury, and scandium. The second patent granted by the Canadian patent office was for our unique method of metal extraction and purification using molecularly imprinted polymers. Molecularly Imprinted Polymers (“MIPS”) selectively bind to specific target molecules in manufacturing and other processes allowing for extraction and purification of the target molecule in the presence of other molecules that are not desirable. MIPS are the foundation of the IXOS® product line.

World markets continue to make significant investment in secure domestic supply of critical metals to meet the global drive to transition to electrification and sustainable power generation ( . Clean, efficient metal processing technology must keep up with this transition while upholding the ESG guidelines of our western economy. Sixth Wave’s IXOS technology delivers these characteristics by reducing use of dangerous and toxic chemicals, reducing energy requirements, and increasing yield providing robust economic advantages.

“Patents remain a vital part of the Company’s strategy and value. Issuance of these patents reinforces Sixth Wave’s position as a leader of technology innovation in mining and metals recycling markets,” said Dr. Gluckman, President and CEO of Sixth Wave.

Sixth Wave believes there are significant revenue opportunities for the Company’s MIPS for metals purification currently sold under the IXOS® brand name. This technology enables the delivery of efficient, scalable, environmentally friendly, and lower cost solutions to our mining customers.
