UV is used for disinfection and removal of organic and inorganic contaminants, including chlorine, ozone and total organic carbon. UV technology is often used where conventional chlorine disinfection cannot be applied and can be used in the advanced oxidation process. Key benefits of UV technology include: improved taste, color, pH or odor of water; it requires no storage, handling or transportation of toxic or corrosive chemicals; effective at inactivating a wide range of microorganisms including chlorine tolerant pathogens; and water reuse capabilities to meet sustainability objectives.
