Pasteurization Technology Group Demonstrates Latest Wastewater Disinfection Technology at WEFTEC 2012

San Leandro, California (EastBayDaily) — Pasteurization Technology Group (PTG), innovator of the only wastewater disinfection process that creates renewable energy, is exhibiting its technology to water-quality and wastewater professionals attending this year’s Water Environment Federation’s Annual Technical Exhibition and Conference (WEFTEC), held in New Orleans.

PTG invites Water Environment Federation (WEF) members to drop by the company’s exhibit booth (#2459) to 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.

PTG’s system is a highly efficient, cost-effective and sustainable solution that enables the reuse of valuable water. The technology is attracting the attention of businesses and municipalities that want to realize substantial energy cost savings and eliminate toxic chemicals through alternatives to traditional chlorine- and UV-based wastewater disinfection systems. The City of Ventura’s Water Department recently completed a successful initial evaluation phase of a project to transition its wastewater treatment plant to a safe, non-toxic, sustainable technology to replace the current chlorine-based disinfection process in use at the Ventura Water Reclamation Facility. PTG’s technology has been certified by the state of California for non-potable reuse under the stringent standards of Title 22.

PTG is the first and only company in the world to combine wastewater disinfection with renewable-energy generation. PTG’s patented technology can use either the digester gas (often referred to as biogas, a natural by-product of wastewater treatment) or natural gas as fuel to drive a turbine that generates renewable electricity. The hot exhaust air from the turbine—energy that is typically wasted—is then passed through a series of heat exchangers that increase the temperature of the wastewater to a level that disinfects the wastewater stream. PTG’s technology is significantly more cost-effective and more energy-efficient than other methods. And, unlike other wastewater disinfection approaches, PTG’s systems do not require toxic chemicals (such as chlorine) or costly electrical power and expensive UV lamps. PTG is experiencing rapid growth as wastewater treatment plants face the challenge of cost-effectively disinfecting wastewater and trimming operating costs.

About Pasteurization Technology Group California-based Pasteurization Technology Group (PTG) is a 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. By channeling the typically wasted exhaust heat from a turbine to disinfect wastewater, PTG’s process is able to deliver the most energy-efficient and lowest-cost solution on the market. PTG has won numerous awards including the 2012 Artemis Project Top 50 Water Tech award and the Popular Science 2011 Best of What’s New award, and was featured in the 2012 Cleantech Forum Entrepreneur Showcase.
