Wastewater is the gateway to environmental pollution from any human activity. In the past, the most common method to inactivate dangerous microorganisms found in effluent and discharge was chlorine in gas or fluid form. In recent years however, disadvantages of the method have been revealed: dangerous by-product formation (such as THMs and HAAs with others still unknown), high costs due to increasing requirements in the de-chlorination step, the administration that follows, and the danger of handling and storing toxic chemicals.
All of these hindrances has made UV disinfection the preferred method, proven to be effective for secondary and tertiary treatments. It also offers a significantly lower environmental impact, design footprint, and costs. Additionally, unlike chlorine, it is effective against Cryptosporidium and Giardia.
