Ultraviolet light has proven track record of killing bacteria and viruses found in municipal wastewater.
In addition, environmental concerns over the use of chemical disinfectants, coupled with improvements in ultraviolet-lighting technology, have led to the development of UV systems that treat spent metalworking fluids in the industrialized world ; disinfect drinking water in developing countries ; and clean aquaculture water, ballast water, and hospital air everywhere.
This technology, which offers an effective disinfection in many ways, is discussed.
