Green Machine began development of its Patented Hyperspectral optical sorting technology in 2006. At that time the technology was so revolutionary Green Machine had to obtain permission from the US Dept. of Defense, often sharing hyperspectral cameras with the Air Force’s F-16s. The first Green Eye® system deployment was in 2007 with more than 50 systems now deployed. Obtaining its Canadian Patent on February 7, 2013, Green Machine’s U.S. patent was issued on the first day of this year’s Waste Expo: April 24, 2018. Green Machine’s original filing date was November 18, 2008. Peter Mendre, Co. Patent issuant, says, “We’re confident no other manufacturer can exhibit prior art prior to our original application date. We took our time with the Patent examiner and are certain that our System/Process patent will ultimately preclude any current manufacturer from utilizing this technology going forward in the U.S. or Canada.” John Green, Owner and Co. Patent Issuant, indicates that he has not yet determined the best path for enforcement of this technology. Green says, “This technology is critical to solving many of today’s recycling processing issues. We are not opposed to licensing agreements with competitors who are respectful of our rights and the R&D we expended in developing this technology. We will be diligent in protecting the rights we’ve earned through the issuance of these patents.”
These unique designs make Green Machine® an innovative leader in the industry. Green Machine’s equipment is more than just a purchase—it’s a lifelong investment. Green Machine invites you to “Weigh the Difference”.
