Description:

Journal Article

Purpose/Objective:

The results of bench- and pilot-scale bleach inactivation tests conducted in this study using three different wash down wastewaters suggest that the currently published formulation of 10% bleach solution with 10% vinegar at 60 minutes of contact time for the inactivation of Bacillus spores in wash down wastewater is more rigorous than necessary.
