Review of the Mechanisms of Toxicity and Current Legislation of Chlorate and Chlorite

Price: £10  

Work was undertaken to update the water industry on any developments concerning the regulation of disinfection by- products chlorite and chlorate. The report outlines the mechanisms of toxicity of chlorine dioxide, chlorate and chlorite, identifies gaps in current knowledge and suggests further research which could clarify the situation. The work was undertaken due to concerns over the storage of chlorine gas and the move to safer means of generating chlorine for drinking water disinfection.
