CTi's Application for Biodiesel Production Approved by USPTO
14 Nov 2013
LOS ANGELES, Nov. 14, 2013 - Cavitation Technologies, Inc. ("CTi") (CVAT) (Berlin: Stuttgart: WTC) announced today that the Company's U.S. Patent Application, entitled 'Process for Producing Biodiesel through Lower Molecular Weight Alcohol-Targeted Cavitation', has been approved for patent issuance.
This approval adds another significant accomplishment to CTi's extensive portfolio of patents related to Cavitation-Assisted Technologies and Cavitation Devices.
"This newly patented hydrodynamic cavitation technology and process has demonstrated that it can reduce costs and significantly lessen the environmental impact associated with biodiesel production," stated CTi's Chief Technology Officer, Mr. Roman Gordon. "Working in cooperation with our strategic business partners, Desmet Ballestra and GEA Westfalia, the Company will initially target North and South American biodiesel producers for new and retrofit installations."
Mr. Gordon continued, "There are numerous biodiesel plants located throughout North and South America and many of these plants are currently seeking improved and innovative production methods. We certainly believe our technology can fill the current needs of those biodiesel producers."
"Compared to conventional methods of biodiesel production, CTi's process can offer superior quality biodiesel while minimizing the amount of harsh chemicals used and lowering operational costs for producers. Furthermore, our process has demonstrated that this can all be accomplished in an environmentally sound manner," concluded Mr. Gordon.
Founded in 2007, the company designs and manufactures state-of-the-art, flow-through, robust devices and systems and develops processing technologies for use in edible oil refining, renewable fuel production, expeditious petroleum upgrading, algal oil extraction, alcoholic beverage enhancement and water treatment. As an add-on to existing neutralization systems, the company's patented Nano-Reactor(R) allows refiners to significantly reduce both processing costs and the environmental impact, while also increasing the yield.
