Whilst effluent treatment with H2O2 is possible in many cases to give environmentally more acceptable processes it is always preferable to improve the situation at source. H2O2 can be used in a range of applications to replace, reduce or handle more effectively environmentally unacceptable products. In performing these improvements the only byproducts are water and oxygen.
