Abstract:
Cavitation Technologies, Inc. (CTi) (OTCBB: CVAT; Berlin & Stuttgart: WTC) announced today that The Flemish Agency for Innovation by Science and Technology (IWT) awarded a €690,000 (US $940,000) research grant to Desmet Ballestra, CTi's strategic partner for the CTI Nano Neutralization™ process. The grant is directed toward Desmet Ballestra's ECO-OIL research project focused on the mild refining technique and the assessment of new applications for the Nano Reactor™ in edible oil processing.

Desmet Ballestra Receives Research Grant to Study Sustainable Oil Refining Using CTI Nano Neutralization™ Process

Los Angeles, CA | Posted on December 5th, 2011

The Faculty of Applied Biological Sciences of the University of Ghent was selected as the academic partner for the research project. Desmet Ballestra has collaborated with the university for more than 15 years.

CTi and Desmet Ballestra entered into a strategic partnership in 2010, initially to commercialize the CTI Nano Neutralization™ process in the edible oil refining market. The partners have successfully implemented two large scale commercial installations and are actively marketing the process
to vegetable oil refiners around the world.

Todd Zelek, chairman and CEO of CTi, said: "Working together with Desmet Ballestra, we have already demonstrated the efficacy of our CTI Nano Neutralization™ process in improving yields, reducing costs and minimizing environmental impacts of vegetable oil refining. Desmet Ballestra's ongoing research will generate crucial data that may lead to further innovations and new applications utilizing CTi's patented Nano Reactor™ in other phases of the refining process."

Marc Kellens, global technology director for Desmet Ballestra, said: "The ECO-OIL project will in part focus on utilizing Nano Reactor™ technology to improve the traditional edible oil refining process. We expect the technology can provide substantial benefits to vegetable oil refiners in addition to neutralization."
