PTG’s Greg Ryan Presenting on the Expansion of Pasteurization for Water Reuse at WEFTEC 2015

In Press Releases on

Mr. Ryan will participate in WEFTEC’s technical program on Wednesday, September 30, 2015 discussing wastewater disinfection for potable and non-potable water reuse including PTG’s technology

September 25, 2015

Greg Ryan, co-founder and CEO of Pasteurization Technology Group (PTG), will speak at the 87th Annual Technical Exhibition and Conference WEFTEC 2015, 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 26 – September 30, 2015.

As part of a half-day workshop that focuses on wastewater disinfection for water reuse, Mr. Ryan will participate as a panelist presenting current findings entitled “Getting Hot: The Expansion of Pasteurization for Potable and Non-Potable Reuse”. Key topics will include results from large demonstration projects completed at Ventura, California wastewater treatment facility (WWTP) in 2013, and in 2015 at Melbourne, Australia WWTP, along with inclusion of PTG’s technology in an ongoing direct potable water reuse study, and examples of PTG’s commercial installations. Attendees will learn how PTG’s integrated, eco-friendly wastewater disinfection system can dramatically decrease their operating costs and reduce their environmental impact, while supporting both direct and indirect potable water reuse.

 Workshop: High-Level Disinfection for Water Reuse
 McCormick Place, Chicago, Illinois; Room S502A
 Wednesday, September 30, 2015. 8:30 am – 11:30 am.

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 in order 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 (See Ch 6 pg 31). By channeling the typically wasted exhaust heat from a turbine or engine to disinfect wastewater, 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.
