Proxitane® WW-12 Peracetic Acid (PAA) microbiocide from Solvay Chemicals is used for biological control in municipal wastewaters. An alternative to halogenated disinfectants such as chlorine-based chemicals, this EPA-registered wastewater disinfectant can have an immediate positive synergistic effect on an existing UV disinfection system by simply adding it into the wastewater. PAA is a more rapidly acting disinfectant than chlorine based disinfectants, does not generate harmful DBPs even if overdosed, and can be economically retrofitted and/or work in series with an existing disinfection system.
