Addressing Disinfection Byproducts

Driven by regulations, disinfection residual in water treatment ensures consistently clean, safe water. However, contaminants like chlorate, TTHM, bromate and others can emerge as a result of chlorine-based water disinfection.  In this webinar, we will look at the hazards of different disinfection byproducts (DBPs) and explore technology options for prevention and mitigation of DBPs with a particular focus on chlorate.

Why you need to attend

  • Understand what disinfection byproducts (DBPs) are and how they are regulated in the water treatment sector
  • Understand what the implications of your disinfection systems are with regard to DBPs
  • Learn how to minimize DBPs
  • Get an overview of chlorates as a DBP and the regulation surrounding this
  • Ultimately – stay ahead of the regulatory curve
