PTG Water & Energy Presents at California Craft Brewers Association Spring Conference

Glenn d’Eon, PTG’s National Sales Manager, leads a workshop titled “Strategies Promoting Water & Energy Efficiencies for Craft Brewing Operation”. The purpose of the workshop was to provide owners, brewers, and operators of craft breweries information about best practices for lowering energy costs, reducing costs of heating and processing water, and ways to promote water reuse.

April 11, 2016

PTG Water & Energy (PTG), innovator of onsite power generation technology optimized for craft breweries, was selected by the California Craft Brewers Association (CCBA) to present and lead a workshop at CCBA’s Spring Conference held at The Westin Hotel in Long Beach, CA. More than 50 representatives from the craft brewing industry attended the workshop, which was led by Glenn d’Eon, PTG’s National Sales Manager. Judging from the audience and their questions, interest in the workshop’s topics was keen. Key topics that Mr. d’Eon covered during the workshop included: Solutions & Options for Reducing Costs of Heating and Processing Water; Keys to Addressing Water Reuse Goals; Costs & Benefits; Available Financial Incentives & Rebates; Evaluation & Design of Solution Systems; and Project Sizing & Installation.

Craft brewers, particularly brewers operating in California, often face high electricity and boiler operating costs. These can be attributable to rising electric utility rates, rapid growth in demand and beer production, and other factors. These increasing costs reduce profits and cash flow that could be used for expansion and other investments. In addition, many craft brewers are concerned with possible blackouts and brownouts by the local utility which could potentially ruin valuable inventory. Finally, as concerns over protecting water resources have grabbed the spotlight recently, many participants in the beverage industry have increased their focus on ways to conserve and reuse water otherwise consumed in production operations.

Controlling energy and water costs while creating the highest-quality beer is crucial for the nation’s craft brewers. In this era of rising energy prices, businesses of all sizes are increasingly turning to Combined Heat and Power technologies and systems in order to cut their increasing power costs. Recent innovations in these technologies have expanded the possible range of applications and sizes.

Combined Heat and Power (CHP), also known as cogeneration, is the simultaneous production of electricity and heat from a single fuel source (such as natural gas or biogas) in a unified system. In a traditional CHP system, hot exhaust gases coming from the engine or turbine that generates electricity are used to heat water and/or create steam. The heated water and/or steam is then used to heat or cool a building or facility.

These CHP concepts can be applied in several novel ways to address BOTH energy and water needs in the beverage industry. For example, these systems can beneficially use exhaust heat to create hot water that is used as an ingredient or input in the craft brewing production process. In this case, custom-designed CHP systems produce hot water at no additional cost by using hot exhaust gases created from onsite electric generation. This results in significant economic savings which rapidly pay for the system investment.

Cogeneration or CHP principals can also be applied to the problem of disinfecting wastewater using a process that is safe, toxic free, and has a low carbon footprint in a unified, integrated system. These methods focus on using exhaust heat to disinfect wastewater. Wastewater generated in the craft brewing process that has been treated and ultimately disinfected using approved methods will qualify for non-potable water reuse, including landscape watering, facility equipment cleaning, and agricultural irrigation.

By treating wastewater, craft brewers can also lower their sewer charges, saving additional costs. These savings, combined with lower energy costs and savings associated with water reuse, pay for the capital investment in the disinfection system within several years, and in a fraction of the system’s expected 20-year useful life.

Mr. d’Eon is leading several PTG’s CHP system installations, including at Golden Road Brewing in Los Angeles, California, which was recently acquired by Anheuser Busch, complimenting their growing line of specialty craft brewers. This installation, along with others, provided the basis for case examples covered during the CCBA workshop. Golden Road calculates that the PTG system will pay for itself in less than three years by reducing its facility’s energy costs by more than 50%, while efficiently producing thousands of gallons of hot water without consuming additional energy resources. They are looking at taking the PTG systems to additional newer facilities.

Pasteurization Technology Group Announces the Start-up of Cutting-Edge Wastewater Disinfection System at the Graton Community Services District

Rural town in Sonoma County has completed installation and testing of PTG’s eco-friendly wastewater disinfection system and has begun co-generating electricity.

September 24, 2014

Pasteurization Technology Group (PTG) completed commissioning and testing of its chemical-free wastewater disinfection system in the northern California town of Graton. This system, which is operated by the Graton Community Services District, will handle all the city’s wastewater disinfection and discharging needs. By switching from a chlorine-based wastewater disinfection system to PTG’s safe, sustainable wastewater disinfection technology, Graton will realize significant operational savings and meet or exceed state water quality standards.

Like many wastewater treatment facilities around the country, the Graton Community Services District is facing increasing wastewater treatment and energy costs. District management and Graton residents are also concerned about the potential harmful environmental impact of using chlorine to disinfect the town’s wastewater. The PTG system eliminates the need for toxic chemicals or costly UV lamps in the final stage of wastewater treatment.
The system uses inexpensive natural gas to generate electricity, which is used in the plant, plant offices, and associated buildings. The PTG system is significantly reducing the District’s costs by generating electricity at half the cost of grid power. PTG’s system is one of the few technologies to be certified by the state of California under its stringent Title 22 standards that regulate the disinfection of water for reuse. The District has also eliminated the costs associated with purchasing and storing chlorine (a toxic and hazardous greenhouse gas).

“We are pleased to announce the start-up of this important system for the town of Graton, and we want to thank the District, its employees and the board for giving PTG this opportunity,” said Greg Ryan, CEO and co-founder of PTG. “This project with this forward-thinking District is a significant milestone for PTG, and is further evidence of our strong value proposition for municipalities. We look forward to helping other municipal wastewater treatment facilities safely and efficiently disinfect wastewater, while lowering their carbon footprint and saving money. In addition, we are seeing increasing demand for our energy saving technologies from facilities operating in the
industrial sector, including food, beverage, and agricultural processing companies.”

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 the agriculture, food, beer, and beverage industries.
