Lighting the way to improved disinfection.
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.
