PHILADELPHIA, Pa (PRWEB) September 01, 2016
PeroxyChem announced today it will exhibit and present at the 89th Annual Water Environment Federation Technical Exhibition and Conference (WEFTEC), showcasing its leadership in the implementation of peracetic acid (PAA) for wastewater disinfection. The conference will be held in New Orleans from Sept. 24 – 28.
PeroxyChem’s considerable experience with PAA for use in wastewater disinfection will be highlighted in the WEFTEC Technical Sessions as well as presentations at the company’s booth. Dr. Philip Block will be presenting during Technical Session 211, PAA: Establishing a New Disinfection Technology, on Monday, Sept. 26 at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. and Session 310, Evolving Wastewater Disinfection Alternatives, on Tuesday, Sept. 27 at 10:30 a.m.
“Through our partnerships with municipalities, their consultants and regulators, our team has been able to generate a significant body of field data and experience that demonstrates not only the effectiveness of PAA as a wastewater disinfectant, but our standing in the industry as an innovator in the space,” said Dr. Philip Block, technology director for Water Treatment. “It’s through conferences like WEFTEC that we are able to share what we’ve learned with our colleagues, work proactively to advance the acceptance of this promising technology and promote the proven efficacy of our chemistry, VigorOx® WWT II.”
PeroxyChem’s PAA-based wastewater disinfection technology, VigorOx WWT II, provides an effective, cost-efficient alternative to chlorine and UV disinfection for municipal wastewater treatment plants.
“Our VigorOx WWT II technology is packaged as a complete solution, which includes the chemical supply, equipment and installation, startup and maintenance services,” said Alberto Garibi, vice president of Business Development. “As a pioneer of PAA as a wastewater disinfectant, we’ve been able to utilize our experience to inform our service offerings, ensuring reliable, cost-effective disinfection solutions that meet regulatory guidelines and a variety of disinfection goals.”
As further testament to its leadership in the industry, PeroxyChem has been selected to participate in an upcoming research study to document the use of PAA for wastewater disinfection.
