Inactivation of Bacillus Spores in Decontamination Wash Down Wastewater using Chlorine Bleach Solution
Muhammad, N, V J. Gallardo, D A. Schupp, E R. Krishnan, K S. Minamyer, AND E. W. Rice. Inactivation of Bacillus Spores in Decontamination Wash Down Wastewater using Chlorine Bleach Solution. Vol.41(1) Canadian Journal of Civil Engineering. NRC Research Press, Ottawa, Canada, 41(1):40-47, (2014).
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.
