(Chesapeake, VA) September 26, 2023 – Greenwave Technology Solutions, Inc. (“Greenwave” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: GWAV), a leading operator of metal recycling facilities in Virginia, North Carolina, and Ohio, today announced that its recently installed shear baler is now fully operational at its Cleveland, Ohio facility. The state-of-the-art equipment is expected to significantly expand the facility’s metal recycling production capacity, enabling it to significantly increase its revenues. Shear balers are highly sophisticated processing equipment within the industry, designed for efficiently shearing car bodies and heavy metals.
“With access to an adjacent railroad to easily transport our products to nearby steel mills, we expect our Cleveland facility to be a significant contributor to Greenwave’s revenues in the coming quarters,” stated Greenwave Chief Executive Officer Danny Meeks. “We believe our Cleveland facility has the potential to be one of our highest volume and most profitable facilities. We’re grateful to our shareholders for their continued support and look forward to keeping investors updated on our progress.”
Greenwave Technology Solutions, Inc., through its wholly owned subsidiary Empire Services, Inc.
(“Empire”), is a leading operator of 13 metal recycling facilities in Virginia, North Carolina, and Ohio. The Company’s recycling facilities collect, classify, and process raw scrap metal (ferrous and nonferrous) and implement several unique technologies to increase metal processing volumes and operating efficiencies, including a downstream recovery system and cloud-based ERP system.
Steel is one of the world’s most recycled products with the ability to be re-melted and re-cast numerous times. Recycling steel provides key environmental benefits over virgin metals, including reduced energy use, lower CO2 emissions, lower waste, and conserving natural resources. Greenwave’s customers include large corporations, industrial manufacturers, retail customers, and government organizations. The Company plans to aggressively expand its footprint of locations by acquiring independent, profitable scrap yards in the coming months. For more information, please visit www.GWAV.com.
