Cavitation Technologies Inc. on Wednesday announced it had received a purchase order for a nanoreactor system for a customer in Mexico.
The order was received from Desmet Ballestra Group, a Paris-based partner company for the Chatsworth manufacturer of fluid processing systems for making edible oils, renewable fuels, alcoholic beverages and clean water.
The Mexican customer will use the reactor for the chemical refining of vegetable oils.
In vegetable oil refining, the nanoreactor technology offers enhanced performance, lowered operating expenses, reduced environmental impact, improved shelf life and reduction of up to 90% of the harsh chemicals used in conventional edible vegetable oil refining processes, according to a news release from Cavitation.
Roman Gordon, global technology officer for the Valley company, said that given that vegetable oil production is increasing, it becomes even more important to bring a sustainable new way to reduce the amount of harsh chemicals used in edible vegetable oil refining processes.
“Our patented nano neutralization process is easy to implement, and it has been proven to dramatically reduce chemical consumption, which is essential in oil production,” Gordon said in a statement.
Cavitation’s Chief Operating Officer Neil Voloshin added that it was always a pleasure to work with its long-time partner, Desmet Ballestra.
“Our team is excited to see our nano reactor sales are moving forward and we aim to introduce our technology to many more communities around the world,” Voloshin said in a statement.
Shares in Cavitation closed up on Wednesday a fraction of a cent to 5 cents on the over-the-counter market.
