Cavitation Technologies Inc. announced Tuesday it is conducting a feasibility study and water remediation pilot program in South Africa.
The program will be funded through the U.S. Trade and Development Agency at a value of $1.7 million. It aims to identify solutions to the decreased water supply and increased wastewater that is challenging Africa and the world at large, according to a release from Cavitation in Chatsworth.
Cavitation manufacturers fluid processing systems for making edible oils, renewable fuels, alcoholic beverages and clean water.
The company’s technology addresses decreasing water sources and increasing wastewater generation by making more water supply available at low costs and allowing industry to recycle wastewater, thereby reducing consumption costs, according to the release.
Roman Gordon, global technology manager at Cavitation, said that the proposed feasibility study and implementation plan will provide replicable models for sustainable water management and distribution that address adverse water-related risks and challenges in South Africa and emerging markets around the world.
The company has proprietary nanotechnology that helps remediate produced water – helping to not only conserve fresh water but also helping to repurpose water that is otherwise wasted, he added.
“We strive to make Cavitation’s technology available in more locations worldwide to help solve water shortages and provide viable solutions to the most in need in the third world countries,” Gordon said in a statement.
Shares of Cavitation Technologies (CVAT) closed Tuesday at 5 cents on the over-the-counter market.
