This formulation, which contains 15% peracetic acid and 23% hydrogen peroxide, improves effectiveness and minimizes BOD impact on effluent. VigorOx WWT II has been applied as primary disinfectant in numerous wastewater treatment plants in North America to eliminate concerns associated with chlorination – safety, toxicity, byproduct formation and cost.
