It isn’t often that we get the opportunity to see the future before it becomes a reality. Utilizing UV technology for wastewater treatment is not only where we are headed; it is here, and it is here to stay. So, what is UV disinfection, and how does UV disinfection in wastewater treatment work?

UV Disinfection: The Future of Wastewater Treatment Today

In the simplest of terms, UV disinfection is the use of ultraviolet light for the disinfection of viruses, mold, bacteria, and many other microorganisms. UV disinfection is also a proven process that effectively eliminates microorganisms and coliforms via determined light wavelengths.

In layman’s terms, we zap the bad stuff. And that is also where that entire futuristic concept, like the lasers we use today, becomes a reality. Today, UV disinfection is not only an effective and proven method for wastewater treatment, but it is also widely used.

In more technical terms, UV light penetrates these unwanted microorganisms and then eradicates them by destroying their DNA makeup. That means that UV disinfection doesn’t only remove microorganisms, but it also prevents them from returning by eliminating the means to multiply and grow.

Before UV disinfection was introduced, it wasn’t uncommon to find harmful chemicals being used in the process of destroying microorganisms. However, with the UV disinfection process, people now have safer and more sustainable wastewater treatment options. 

Today, UV disinfection is commonly integrated into the filtration process of many wastewater treatment plants around the world. UV disinfection is not only a proven, effective, and widely-used wastewater treatment solution, but it also meets the most stringent mold and bacteria protection requirements.
