Mr. Ryan offers his perspective on how PTG’s two-for-one renewable wastewater disinfection technology is an alternative to UV or chlorine while reducing energy costs.
September 10, 2013
Greg Ryan, CEO and co-founder of Pasteurization Technology Group (PTG), is a featured speaker at the upcoming California Water Environment Association (CWEA) Northern Regional Training Conference, a conference that features technical sessions and workshops for managers and operators in the wastewater industry in California. PTG’s patented technology enables non-toxic, non-chemical wastewater disinfection while also generating renewable energy. Mr. Ryan will share examples of how PTG’s sustainable technology is helping various municipal wastewater treatment plants to dramatically reduce their energy and water treatment costs.
PTG is growing rapidly in the municipal industry in addition to the agricultural processing, food processing and beer industries. PTG’s technology has won numerous awards (e.g., Water Environment Federation’s (WEF) “Technology of the Year,” WateReuse Association’s “Project of the Year”, Katerva Award) and has also been officially recognized by the EPA.

PTG helps municipal wastewater treatment facilities to disinfect wastewater while generating renewable energy
PTG’s patented technology is the first and only technology to combine wastewater disinfection with the generation of renewable energy. PTG’s integrated systems can use available waste by-products (such as biogas or biomass), or natural gas, to power a turbine or engine that generates electricity. The turbine’s hot exhaust air (which is typically wasted) is passed through a waste-heat recovery unit that increases the temperature to disinfect the wastewater. PTG’s intelligent software efficiently optimizes energy and water flow throughout the integrated system. PTG’s systems are significantly more cost-effective and energy-efficient than other disinfection methods. And, unlike other wastewater disinfection approaches, PTG’s technology is sustainable since it does not require toxic chemicals such as chlorine, or costly electrical power and expensive UV lamps. As a result, PTG’s systems fit a broad range of applications in both the municipal and industrial market sectors.
About Pasteurization Technology Group
California-based Pasteurization Technology Group (PTG) is a rapidly 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. PTG’s technology has also been officially recognized in the EPA’s influential Guidelines for Water 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 Water Environment Federation’s (WEF) “Technology of the Year,” Artemis Top 50 Water Tech award, WateReuse Association’s “Project of the Year,” the Katerva Award, and the Popular Science “Best of What’s New” award.
