Mr. Ryan offers his perspective on how PTG’s two-for-one renewable wastewater disinfection technology gives municipalities and businesses a way to re-use an increasingly scarce and valuable resource.
November 26, 2012
Greg Ryan, co-founder and CEO of Pasteurization Technology Group (PTG), is a featured speaker at the upcoming AlwaysOn GoingGreen Silicon Valley 2012, a conference that showcases innovative greentech companies. Mr. Ryan will share his vision for “The Future of Water” on a panel that convenes some of the industry’s top water-technology innovators for a lively discussion, moderated by recognized water expert Laura Shankar.
PTG is experiencing heightened interest and customer momentum, and its eco-friendly technology has received expert recognition. 2012 has been a year of intense customer growth for the PTG, which recently moved to larger headquarters space in order to accommodate accelerating sales. The company has also established channel partnerships, which are accelerating the velocity of customer opportunities across multiple industries.
PTG recently received validation at the highest technical level through its inclusion by the EPA in the agency’s influential “Guidelines for Water Reuse.” The EPA noted that PTG’s technology is a proven process for effective wastewater disinfection, and one that has undergone rigorous testing and offers significant cost savings over other approaches by reducing energy consumption and eliminating the use of chemicals.

The PTG eco-friendly system for wastewater disinfection and renewable energy
PTG is the first and only company in the world to combine wastewater disinfection with renewable-energy generation. PTG’s patented technology can use either the digester gas (often referred to as biogas, a natural by-product of wastewater treatment) or natural gas as fuel to drive a turbine or engine that generates renewable electricity. The hot exhaust air from the turbine or engine—energy that is typically wasted—is then passed through a series of customized heat exchangers that increase the temperature of the wastewater to a level that disinfects the wastewater stream. PTG’s technology is significantly more cost-effective and more energy-efficient than other methods. And, unlike other wastewater disinfection approaches, PTG’s systems do not require toxic chemicals (such as chlorine) or costly electrical power and expensive UV lamps.
About Pasteurization Technology Group
California-based Pasteurization Technology Group (PTG) is a fast-growing, venture-capital backed company that is revolutionizing the disinfection of wastewater. PTG’s systems feature its patented “two-for-one” technology that combines eco-friendly wastewater disinfection with the generation of renewable energy. PTG’s process is one of only a handful of technologies to pass the stringent standards of Title 22 in the state of California for the disinfection of water for reuse. By channeling the typically wasted exhaust heat from a turbine or engine to disinfect wastewater, PTG’s process is able to deliver the most energy-efficient and lowest-cost solution on the market. PTG has won numerous awards including the 2012 Artemis Top 50 Water Tech award and the Popular Science 2011 “Best of What’s New” award.
