EPA 2012 Guidelines for Water Reuse

Pasteurization Technology Group (PTG) is profiled in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) 2012 Guidelines for Water Reuse. Recognizing the need to provide national guidance on water reuse regulations and program planning, the publication provides comprehensive, up-to-date water reuse guidelines developed by the EPA in support of regulations and guidelines developed by states, tribes, and other authorities.

Over 300 reuse experts, practitioners, and regulators contributed text, technical reviews, regulatory information, and case studies as a part of a two-stage technical review. In the publication, the EPA states that the field of reuse has expanded greatly over the past decade, and observes there is a need to address new applications and advances in technologies, as well as updated state regulatory information. The publication includes PTG’s patented technology as one of the primary techniques for wastewater disinfection, and discusses the energy-efficient benefits of PTG’s unique technology, which combines wastewater disinfection with renewable-energy generation.

The EPA notes that PTG’s technology is a proven process for both municipal and industrial wastewater disinfection that has undergone rigorous testing, and that offers significant cost savings over other approaches by reducing energy consumption and eliminating the use of chemicals.
