The Power of Peracetic Acid
PAA is a powerful water reclamation disinfectant gaining interest across the United States. As an alternative to chlorine, it has faster reaction kinetics, may not require neutralization, and may achieve the same performance at a lower dose, making it a great fit for certain applications. Join Sarah Stewart and Brian Hilts, two water experts who have over a decade of combined experience working with PAA, to find out why PAA disinfection will likely soon form part of a widely-accepted “disinfection trifecta” with chlorine and UV.
The discussion includes:
- The benefits, challenges and drawbacks involved in PAA disinfection
- The drivers that are making PAA disinfection a good fit for many water reclamation facilities
- The current state of PAA implementation and the regulatory climate across the U.S.
- What a facility should do now if it is considering implementing PAA in the future
Sarah and Brian share examples from their project work to illustrate the power of PAA, and reveal what’s coming next as the water industry continues to embrace this highly effective disinfectant.
