TUEBINGEN, Germany, Oct. 13, 2004 -- The markets for water disinfection, water purification and securing water quality with other methods is growing worldwide between 8% and 25% depending on the sector, branch and country, according to a new report from Helmet Kaiser Consultancy.

Water Disinfection is a study about water disinfection, purification and info/control automation in total including the most recent technological innovations with nanotechnologies and molecular technologies. These new technologies will change the water treatment markets in the next 10 years dramatically. The costs and prices of water in the future will largely depend on the disinfection necessity and the applied technologies.

The water quality is declining. Different water sectors face problems to keep the early water quality through conventional treatment/disinfection approaches. Meanwhile, water quality regulations are becoming more stringent, complex and costly. Last but not least, the concerns about biotech pollution or terrorism challenge the capability of water disinfection as well. In this study, different water disinfection/purification methods will be discussed. This includes physical and chemical processes such as the usage of chlorine, UV, ozonization, filtration and membrane processes with pathogen removal, and also thermal processes such as distillation, evaporation/condensation, and steam stripping , to name a few.

A special section about nanotechnology and molecular technology is added in the study for the first time. The molecular featured processes represent the developing trend of water disinfection/purification because of their efficiency, preciseness and high performance-price ratio. A number of nanotechnologies are already utilised in membrane process and UV disinfection. More applications are to be found in more sectors in the water disinfection industries during the next years.

The study can be obtained in whole or in segments of applications, technologies, countries or branches. For more information, see www.hkc22.com/waterdisinfection.html.
