CINCINNATI, Ohio, May 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Tauriga Sciences, Inc. (OTCQB: TAUG) ("Tauriga" or the "Company"), a diversified life sciences company with interests in the natural wellness sector and in developing a proprietary synthetic biology platform technology, is pleased to announce that its subsidiary Pilus Energy will be participating in the 2015 World Environmental & Water Resources Congress in Austin, TX May 17-21 at the JW Marriot (110 E. Second St. Austin, TX 78701). Pilus will be presenting at the Sunday poster session from 4:30 pm to midnight. The theme for this year is Floods, Droughts, and Ecosystems: Managing Our Resources Despite Growing Demands and Diminishing Funds.
Created in 1999, the Environmental & Water Resources Institute (EWRI) is the recognized leader within the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) for the integration of technical expertise and public policy in the planning, design, construction, and operation of environmentally sound and sustainable infrastructure impacting air, land, and water resources.
Tauriga's Chairman & CEO Dr. Stella Sung stated, "We are delighted to share Pilus's innovative technology in this forum, because our ultimate goal is to commercialize and apply Pilus's proprietary, enhanced bacterial strains to improve our ecosystem amid more scarce natural resources. We are committed to both our consumer natural wellness business and our 'wastewater to value' subsidiary, as we see promise for both to improve lives and bring shareholder value. "
In addition to Pilus's ongoing commercial pilot study to demonstrate feasibility of applying Pilus's synthetic biology platform to a large scale industrial sewage treatment plant, Tauriga Advisory Board Member and Pilus Energy Co-Founder, Professor Daniel Hassett has generated promising preliminary data using synthetic urine as carbon source for a Pilus bacterial strain. When the proprietary Pilus bacteria metabolized and remediated urine, the resulting power density was approximately threefold the power of any electrogenic bioreactor using urine to date, suggesting a possible near term opportunity in generating electricity using portable toilets.
