Treating the Clean Water Crunch

Spotlight Companies |

Here’s where Cavitation Technologies, Inc (OTCQB: CVAT; Berlin: WTC) could potentially make a huge impact. The company shares its name with the powerful natural process involving changes in pressure that generates cavities in flowing fluids (“bubbles” of sorts) that release energy as they implode. The company, which goes by CTi for short, has harnessed the power of cavitation and controls the process in its CTi Nano Reactor system. The system is used across multiple industries and applications to improve yield, lower operating costs and reduce environmental impact.

CTi’s patented Cavitation & Electrocoagulation System is a high-efficiency purification process for treating processed or contaminated industrial water. Underscored by CTi’s deep understanding of cavitation, the system can remove any number of contaminants from the water, ranging from deadly pathogens like bacteria and viruses to heavy metals, fats, grease, etc. to facilitate making unhealthy water potable.

Moreover, it shouldn’t be assumed that only under-developed nations could benefit from CTi’s water purification system. Wastewater treatment is a multi-billion-dollar market in the U.S. today and expected to command over $11 billion in capex from municipal utilities by 2025, according to analysts at Bluefield Research in a 2015 report. Droughts and water shortages in populous states like California and Florida, not to mention contaminated water in Michigan and California, have put a spotlight on leveraging technology for water re-use.

When considering that the U.S., the most advanced country in the world, has a water infrastructure that earns a horrible D- on the American Society of Civil Engineers’ report card, the domestic opportunity may be even greater than it seems at first blush. It’s an opportunity where CTi could provide an efficient solution with a quick return on investment.



Furthermore, CTi’s C&E System, which uses substantially less chemicals, has many benefits versus traditional chemical processes to remove impurities, contaminants and toxins from water. For starters, sludge, a costly, disposable byproduct of wastewater treatment, is reduced by more than half. The technology also slashes energy consumption, increases yield and requires less resources to run and maintain. In the aggregate, it also comes with the perk of meaning transportations costs (and vehicle emissions) and other associated liabilities are reduced.
