  1. Measurement Of VigorOx® WWT II Peracetic Acid In Wastewater

    Accurate measurement of peracetic acid (PAA) in wastewater is critical for the proper dosing of PAA to meet target microbial reduction targets and to ascertain the concentration of PAA in the plant effluent to meet local regulatory water quality standards. This edition of Wastewater Disinfection Forum discusses the current state of the art in the measurement of PAA in municipal wastewater.

  2. Defining The Maximum Allowable Discharge Limit Of VigorOx® WWT II (Peracetic Acid) In Wastewater Effluent

    This article discusses the discharge limit of peracetic acid (PAA) into the environment and the incorporation of dilution factors in the assessment of site-specific, risk-based residual PAA concentration in wastewater effluents.

  3. The Safe Use And Handling Of Vigorox® WWT II Wastewater Disinfection Technology

    VigorOx® WWT II wastewater disinfection technology is a very effective technology for wastewater disinfection. Its combination of efficacy for microbial kill, ease of use and low impact on the environment make it an ideal choice as an alternative to chlorine disinfection.

  7. The Impact Of Peracetic Acid On Receiving Waters: Biochemical Oxygen Demand And Dissolved Oxygen

    The use of peracetic acid (PAA) for wastewater disinfection has seen significant growth in North America over the last several years due to its advantages over chlorine-­‐based chemistries.

  8. The Decomposition Kinetics Of Peracetic Acid And Hydrogen Peroxide In Municipal Wastewaters

    Efficient control of microbial populations in municipal wastewater using peracetic acid (PAA) requires an understanding of the PAA decomposition kinetics.

  9. VigorOx® WWT II Wastewater Disinfection Technology And Viruses

    VigorOx® WWT II is an equilibrium peracetic acid solution that contains 15% peracetic acid (PAA) by weight at full concentration. The solution exists as an equilibrium of PAA, hydrogen peroxide, acetic acid and water.

  10. The Impact Of VigorOx® WWT II Wastewater Disinfection Technology On Endocrine Disruptors

    Endocrine disruptors (EDs) are a class of chemicals with the ability to interfere with the endocrine (hormonal) processes in mammals. Any hormonal process in the body can potentially be impacted by endocrine disruptors.
