The widespread use of UV disinfection technology for wastewater treatment globally is evidence, if it were needed, that it is no longer an ’emerging’ technology. Indeed, it is now an accepted, mainstream disinfection method used routinely by water and wastewater engineers across the world to safeguard human health and alleviate environmental pressures. UV is particularly
Berson UV systems disinfect effluent before discharge into Desna River Berson has supplied two of its InLine+ UV disinfection systems to the wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) in the city of Chernihiv (population 350,000), north-east of Kiev, the Ukrainian capital. The Berson UV systems disinfect effluent prior to its discharge into the Desna River. “Disinfection is
UV and H2O2 combine in an AOP-process to destroy pharmaceutical compounds Berson’s medium pressure UV systems are being used in a trial in the Netherlands to treat hospital wastewater prior to discharge. In the trial, UV is applied in combination with hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) to generate OH- radicals in a so-called “Advanced Oxidation Process” (AOP).
UV disinfection specialist Berson has helped the Wilsonville Power Systems Development Facility in Alabama, USA comply with strict wastewater discharge regulations. In four years of operation, contaminants have been kept within permit limits with minimal maintenance. The Wilsonville Power Systems Development Facility (PSDF) is a research and development centre that tests coal-based technologies before they
