    Peracetic acid (PAA)-based disinfection is growing in the US, both as a standalone disinfection method and in conjunction with other applications such as UV. Water Online Radio sat down with John Maziuk, Technical Development Manager with Solvay Chemicals to understand why.

  10. Treatment Alternatives For PFCs
    7/4/2017

    Over the past two years, no groundwater issue has perhaps received as much community focus and attention as polyfluoroalkyl and perfluoroalkyl substances like PFOA and PFOS, often referred to as perflourinated compounds (PFCs). The U.S. EPA issued a health advisory, limiting the amount of these compounds to 70 parts/trillion which kicked off a nationwide evaluation of local water sources.
