PTG Water & Energy Demonstrates How Breweries Can Gain Energy Independence at Craft Brewers Conference and BrewExpo America

In Press Releases on

PTG’s combined heat and power technology boosts brewers’ margins in three ways: 1) reduces electricity and gas bills; 2) lowers sewer bills by treating wastewater so it can be safely recycled; and 3) provides access to a ‘free’ supply of hot water.

PTG Water & Energy (PTG), innovator of onsite power generation technology for commercial use, will demonstrate its advanced combined heat and power (CHP) and wastewater treatment system that is optimized for craft breweries.

PTG’s technology, which received the prestigious Innovative Technology Award from the Water Environment Federation (WEF), is now getting the nod from forward-thinking craft brewers looking to reduce their electricity, natural gas and sewer bills — while boosting their commitment to energy efficiency. At next week’s event, PTG will announce the deployment of a system at a leading California craft brewer.

“All the craft brewers interested in PTG’s technology are eager to isolate themselves from rising energy and water costs, and we can help them on both fronts,” said Greg Ryan, CEO and co-founder of PTG. “The combination of energy independence, the availability of hot water as a by-product, and protection from blackouts and brownouts — these are all extremely compelling benefits for craft brewers of all sizes.”

PTG Water & Energy: the only modular and scalable CHP system optimized for craft breweries

Controlling energy and water costs while creating the highest-quality beer is crucial for the nation’s craft brewers. PTG’s optimized systems can reduce electricity and heating costs in breweries by more than 50 percent while also providing backup electricity during blackouts or brownouts. PTG’s technology provides free hot water for use in the brewing process, slashing the operating costs of expensive boilers. The systems also offer the additional advantage of treating wastewater and reducing sewer charges, which enables water to be recycled to reduce freshwater costs.

PTG’s wastewater treatment systems are sustainable and non-toxic, and require no chemicals. All of PTG’s systems are easy to integrate into existing brewing processes.
