First Commercial Startup of CTI's Proprietary System a Huge Success
21 May 2010
Cavitation Technologies, Inc. (CTI) (OTC Bulletin Board: CVAT; Berlin/Stuttgart: WTC) is pleased to announce the startup of its Green D Plus Nano Cavitation Reactor System at a 200 metric ton/day vegetable oil refining facility located in South Carolina.
CTI's Nano Cavitation System consists of equipment manufactured to CTI's specifications and operated with proprietary technology. The system is designed for use in refining and processing vegetable oils into edible consumer food products and for other liquids applications and processes.
According to Roman Gordon, CTI's CEO, "We are very pleased with the performance of our system. It has exceeded all our expectations in the first two weeks of its operation. We are excited by the fact that our process during this initial operation reduced and in some cases eliminated the use of certain chemicals. We have also observed substantial improvement in overall performance of the refinery. Due to the successes of this trial, we now have orders for two additional pilot systems."
On January 20, 2010, CTI announced that it had entered into a worldwide licensing and marketing arrangement for its Green D Plus System with Desmet Ballestra, a worldwide leader in the design and delivery of advanced processing systems for vegetable (edible) oil extraction and refining facilities throughout the world. The startup and initial operation of CTI's system at the South Carolina facility is the first commercial deployment of CTI's technology in the vegetable oil industry.
Commenting on the initial results of CTI's system, the General Manager of the South Carolina facility stated, "The results we are getting with the CTI technology are way beyond our expectations."
Tim Kemper, CEO of Desmet Ballestra North America, further commented, "I think this technology really has the potential to be the biggest improvement that the refining industry has seen in decades. We are very pleased with the results."
