Drinking water treatment

Water, especially drinking water, is an essential good for the human body and the maintenance of its function. The importance of clean drinking water for people was underlined by the General Assembly of the United Nations in 2010, when it recognized access to clean drinking water as a human right [1]. According to the German Drinking Water Ordinance, the drinking water provided may among other things not surpass defined concentrations of heavy metals and microorganisms. Some of these defined germs can for example cause diarrhea.

In order to reduce the germ load in the drinking water, it can be disinfected with our product. This process can also be referred to as chemical treatment of drinking water. The active ingredient in our products acts as an oxidizing agent, which disrupts the metabolism of the harmful microorganism in the water and kills the pathogen [2].
