Is Organiks Chlorine Dioxide Eco-Friendly?
Yes, Organiks is Eco-Friendly!
Organiks chlorine dioxide is environmentally friendly due to the fact that it breaks down into harmless and nontoxic compounds.
“Because chlorine dioxide oxidizes but does not chlorinate, chlorinated organic by-products (e.g., THM, HAA, dioxins, furans) typically are not produced. Neither does chlorine dioxide produce appreciable amounts of aldehydes, ketones, ketoacids nor other problematic compounds associated with oxidation of organic matter by other, less selective means.”
In fact, chlorine dioxide is also used as a pollution protection technology, protecting the environment and human health from bacteria and by-products formed from other disinfectants. In some cases, chlorine dioxide from industrial mill waste water has led to a significant improvement in aquatic eco-system.
