SAN LEANDRO, Calif., Sept. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Pasteurization Technology Group (PTG), innovator of the only wastewater disinfection process that creates renewable energy, is exhibiting its technology to water and wastewater professionals attending this year's 86th Water Environment Federation's Annual Technical Exhibition and Conference (WEFTEC), held in Chicago.
PTG invites WEFTEC attendees to drop by the company's exhibit booth (#775a) at the WEFTEC Innovation Pavilion 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 will also be honored at WEFTEC with the prestigious Innovative Technology of the Year Award from WEF. The Innovative Technology Award is the premier award presented annually to leading companies that have introduced pioneering technologies related to the water and wastewater industries. PTG is being recognized from among many companies in the Innovative Technology category for its X-500 system which uses waste heat from turbines or engines to disinfect wastewater while also generating electricity.

About PTG's 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) is passed through a waste-heat recovery unit that increases the temperature to disinfect the wastewater. 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 since it 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 processing, 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 EPA's influential 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.
