Pasteurization Technology Group’s Greg Ryan to Present at WEFTEC 2014

In Press Releases on

Mr. Ryan presents on how sustainable wastewater disinfection technology with renewable energy generation can create significant cost savings for both municipalities and food processing, beer, and agriculture businesses

September 25, 2014

Greg Ryan, co-founder and CEO of Pasteurization Technology Group (PTG), is a featured speaker at the 87th Annual Technical Exhibition and Conference WEFTEC 2014, one of the world’s largest annual water quality conferences and exhibitions. The event is expected to host thousands of global water quality experts and exhibiting companies from September 27 – October 1, 2014.

As part of an all-day workshop that focuses on wastewater disinfection, Mr. Ryan will share examples of how PTG, innovator of the only wastewater disinfection process that creates renewable energy, is able to generate significant cost savings for municipalities as well as food, beverage, and agriculture industries. Attendees will learn how PTG’s integrated, eco-friendly wastewater disinfection system can dramatically decrease their operating costs, reduce their environmental impact, and lower their power bill by generating renewable electricity.

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 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.
