Global data shows UV disinfection offers a significantly safer wastewater treatment option for communities and plant workers. It effectively destroys virtually all harmful microorganisms such as E.coli, Salmonella, Giardia and Cryptosporidium, making it a comprehensive approach for wastewater discharge treatment. With no carcinogenic by-products or negative impacts on aquatic life and the environment, UV disinfection is also genuinely sustainable.
For a majority of municipal wastewater UV disinfection tenders, a minimum required UV dose is specified. Where this figure is not provided, UV Guard will apply global best-practice to provide a recommended UV dose rate to achieve a certain treated water total coliform value.
