Q1 2012 highlights

Market opportunities for PTG continue to build as its core markets, wastewater treatment plants and the food and beverage industries. These facilities face mounting pressure to control costs and curb the use of toxic chemicals and excessive energy use. The PTG patented system disinfects wastewater using environmentally friendly methods. Highlights of the initial quarter of 2012 include:
• Closed venture capital investment by EIC Ventures.
• Growing sales backlog across a variety of industries, domestic and international
• Accelerating revenues with multiple contracts with wastewater treatment plants
• Launched the new mobile PTG System XM-5 for quick deployment and to fast-track pilot studies
• Selected to present in the Entrepreneur Showcase at the 2012 Cleantech Forum San Francisco

PTG transforms treated wastewater into a valuable resource
PTG is the first and only company in the world to combine wastewater disinfection with renewable-energy generation. PTG’s patented technology can use the digester gas (often referred to as biogas, a natural by-product of wastewater treatment) 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.
