Pasteurization Technology Group (PTG) will receive the 2013 Innovative Technology Award from the Water Environment Federation (WEF). The award will be presented during a ceremony at the organization's 86th Annual Technical Exhibition and Conference (WEFTEC 2013), in October in Chicago.

"This award mirrors the enthusiastic response we are seeing from the municipal, agricultural, beer, food and beverage industries due to the substantial cost savings our technology provides."
Pasteurization Technology Group will be honored during WEFTEC 2013. The event is expected to host thousands of global water quality experts and exhibiting companies at Chicago's McCormick Place Oct. 5 to 9, 2013.
