Proxitane WW-12 Peracetic Acid -- For Biological Control In Municipal Wastewaters
Environmentally-compatible Proxitane WW-12 Peracetic Acid (PAA) microbiocide from Solvay Chemicals, Inc. is used for biological control in municipal wastewaters. This EPA-registered wastewater disinfectant is an alternative to halogenated disinfectants such as chlorine-based chemicals, and can have an immediate positive synergistic effect on an existing UV disinfection system by simply adding it into the wastewater. Compared to dosage requirements for industrial grade NaOCl, Proxitane WW-12 PAA is applied at a similar rate, does not require a dechlorination step, nor does it form chlorinated byproducts.
Solvay Chemicals is collaborating with the EPA under a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) to gain practical information regarding peracetic acid’s usefulness as a green alternative to chlorine-based water disinfectants to reduce disinfection byproducts.
