DEScycle files patent under the PCT
Descycle is pleased to announce that it has filed an expanded international patent (the “Patent”) under the Patent Cooperation Treaty (“PCT”), which covers the Company and its e-waste recycling process in over 150 jurisdictions from the original filing date of the UK patent in September 2021.
Descycle’s initial focus will be to use this technology to create a sustainable solution to e-waste recycling, a rapidly growing industry which is currently a significant contributor to global carbon emissions.
Leo Howden, Descycle Managing Director commented: “We are pleased to have submitted the PCT application for our novel DES process. Our team continue to work towards the development of our first pilot plant, and this patent is an important milestone both for protecting our intellectual property.”
