Greg Ryan is an experienced entrepreneur with roots in agriculture, food processing, water, and energy. He is also an expert in the application of highly efficient, cost-effective and sustainable solutions that enable the recycling of water. He founded PTG with the vision of turning wastewater and biogas into valuable resources for the food processing and agriculture industries. PTG is growing rapidly and attracting interest from companies across different industries as the only eco-friendly wastewater disinfection technology that creates renewable energy. PTG recently received the prestigious 2013 Innovative Technology Award from the Water Environment Federation (WEF), the worldwide industry association for water and wastewater professionals, as well as a Katerva Award that is often called the “Nobel Prize of Sustainability”.
The PTG eco-friendly system for wastewater disinfection and 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 natural gas to power a turbine or engine that generates electricity. The turbine’s hot exhaust air (which is typically wasted) passes through a waste-heat recovery unit that increases the temperature of wastewater to disinfect it. 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. Unlike other wastewater disinfection approaches, PTG’s technology is sustainable and 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 such as agriculture, food processing, and beverage processing.
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 influential EPA’s 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’s technology enables tremendous cost savings in water- and energy-intensive industries such as agriculture, beverage and food processing. PTG has won numerous awards including the Water Environment Federation (WEF) Innovative Technology Award, the Katerva Award, the Artemis Top 50 Water Tech award, and the Popular Science “Best of What’s New” award.
