Case Study. Relivit has exclusive rights to use the Knowaste technology in Australia and New Zealand

In 2011, Knowaste entered into a license agreement with Relivit, to whom we granted the exclusive rights to the Knowaste technology and know-how in Australia and New Zealand. Mark Dunn, Managing Director, comments "Relivit has gained significant benefit from the years of design and development by Knowaste and the practical experience with the treatment of AHP waste in different settings”. Relivit is currently working with a range of customers to secure supply of AHP waste for its first recycling facility, which is expected to open 2015-2016. Knowaste are supporting Relivit in transferring technical and commercial knowledge, and during investment rounds.
