Introduction to UV Disinfection - European Focus
This fact sheet provides an overview of ultraviolet (UV) disinfection technology for drinking water treatment with a focus on European drinking water guidelines, multi-barrier strategy and the differences between DVGW and USEPA validation.
- Unlike chemical approaches to water disinfection, UV light provides rapid, effective inactivation of micro-organisms through a physical process.
- UV light has demonstrated efficacy against pathogenic organisms, including those responsible for cholera, polio, typhoid, hepatitis, Giardia, Cryptosporidium and other bacterial, viral and parasitic diseases.
- UV is well suited to meet drinking water regulations and protocols including EC Council Directive 98/83/EC, DVGW, USEPA UVDGM and ÖNORM.
