UV disinfection has been proven worldwide as the most important water disinfection process.
Bacteria, viruses, yeast and parasites (for example, cryptosporidium and giardia) are effectively inactivated by using UV light. There is no development of resistance in UV disinfection as is increasingly experienced in, for example, treatment using antibiotics and also in chlorination. There are no resultant dangerous by-products (DBP) as is the case with chemical disinfection.
