The Decomposition Kinetics of Peracetic Acid and Hydrogen Peroxide in Municipal Wastewaters

This edition of Disinfection Forum evaluates peracetic acid and hydrogen peroxide decomposition modeled in fifteen wastewaters across the United States. An understanding of decomposition kinetics is critical to ensure the proper dosing of peracetic acid to achieve adequate disinfection results, as well as to anticipate the potential impact on the discharge environment.
