Cavitation Technologies, Inc. Provides Update on Bio-Diesel System Trial at U.S. Refinery

Initial Trial Results Indicate Significant Reduction in Operational Cost and Improved Quality of Bio-Diesel With Use of CTis Technology

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 7, 2016) - Cavitation Technologies, Inc. ("CTi") (OTCQB: CVAT) reports that in January 2016 it installed a Nano Reactor System designed specifically for the production of Bio-Diesel at a refinery in the U.S. Since the installation, the Company has received positive feedback and certain data relating to trial.

The initial results indicate that CTi's technology and process, which was granted a patent by the USPTO in 2013, entitled 'Process for Producing Biodiesel through Lower Molecular Weight Alcohol-Targeted Cavitation', has demonstrated that it can substantially reduce the use of chemicals and associated costs in the production of biodiesel. Working in tandem with strategic partner Desmet Ballestra, the Company intends to initially target North and South American bio-diesel refineries for new facility installations as well as the enhancement and upgrading of older refineries.

Roman Gordon, CTi's CTO commented that, "We certainly believe that this trial provides us with preliminary evidence that our technology has the potential to fill the current and future needs of bio-diesel producers. Refineries such as the one where our Nano Reactor System is currently being utilized are constantly looking for technologies that provide an innovative approach to the reduction of operational costs and improving the quality of bio-diesel. Also, our process allows refineries to use less harsh chemicals, which lessens the environmental impact of the production process."
