UC Davis Olive Center Evaluating New Logic Research's VSEP for the Olive Industry

Goal of testing is to reduce wastewater volumes and find way to harvest beneficial products for use in nutriceuticals

DAVIS and EMERYVILLE, Calif., Dec. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The UC Davis (University of California, Davis) Olive Center and USDA-ARS (United States Department of Agriculture-Agricultural Research Service) have been awarded a grant to develop innovative approaches to wastewater management and beneficial reuse. Among the technologies being evaluated is the VSEP vibrating membrane system from New Logic Research.

With over 600 million gallons of wastewater generated per year, the California olive industry is looking to find new ways to save water and reduce discharge fees. Taking it one step further, the UC Davis Olive Center hopes to find ways to harvest beneficial products from the waste streams for use in nutriceuticals. The project is being spearheaded by the Olive Center's Research Director Dr. Selina Wang. Dr. Wang hopes to develop an approach that enables olive oil producers to reduce their wastewater volumes by up to 90%.

As part of its University Outreach Program, New Logic will be providing a VSEP Series LP system at no cost for the duration of the testing, as well as on-site technical support and training. New Logic CEO Greg Johnson spoke of the importance of university collaboration: "Now more than ever, the country needs innovation, and that's exactly what you get when you combine our novel technology and the passion of talented young engineers like those at the UC Davis Olive Center. We know what it's like to take the seed of an idea and grow it into a thriving business—working with university researchers helps us reconnect with our roots while educating a new generation of engineers about our technology—everyone wins."
