“When you look at it holistically the CST system works all the way around. It gets rid of wastewater streams, solid waste streams - our olive pits - it generates electricity, it reduces our use of fossil fuels. It’s truly amazing the impact it’s going to have on our business operations and how we fit in with the community and with how we fit in with the environment.”
        Ben Hall, Director of Environmental Programs, Musco Family Olive Company

“CST is using distillation to get the purest water you can get. But they're adding value along the process by recovering a big portion of the energy through the steam engines, and then concentrating the salts in a way that can be managed.”
        Jose Faria, California Department of Water Resources

“It’s not nice waking up and not knowing how to get out of a water problem. Now that we’ve installed the CST system, we’ve got people who were looking at us as a negative seeing us as someone who’s pioneering green technology that can be used up and down the valley.”
        Felix Musco, Musco Family Olive Company

“There are so many different things going on with green energy, and most of them are so esoteric that, as a scientist reading about them in Physics Today, I can’t understand what they’re talking about. What CST is doing is putting together real world tools in real world environments and solving today’s problems today.”
        Carol Stoker, NASA rocket scientist

“This could be the silver bullet to solve the Central Valley’s salt problem."
        Gary M. Carlton, Kennedy/Jenks Consultants

“We shouldn’t think of the brine as a waste stream, but should think of it as a resource stream. We can make marketable materials and products out of that stream. Schubert's system is the kind of out-of-the-box thinking we need to see.”
        Karl Longley, CA Water Board
