A cost effective, environmentally sound alternative to chlorine
Chlorination using gaseous chlorine and commercial hypochlorite is commonly used for wastewater disinfection, but environmentally friendly alternatives are becoming a priority for the sector. With no toxic chlorinated by-products and a low dose rate, chlorine dioxide treatment of wastewater offers a safe, environmentally friendly alternative that is ideally suited for wastewater applications.
ClO₂ is able to cope with turbid waters, and requires low maintenance – making it an ideal alternative to UV systems. Unlike UV, ClO₂ will also remove both H2S odours and the sulphide reducing bacteria that cause odour complaints and corrosion. ClO₂ degrades to harmless salt in waste water networks, making it an ideal environmentally friendly alternative.
