Peracetic acid (PAA) is one of the most versatile and widely used disinfectants on the market. PAA has proven to be an excellent sanitizer and disinfectant in the food, beverage, cosmetic, pharmaceutical, and agriculture industries for industrial water treatment, as well as an excellent disinfectant for use in the wastewater treatment industry.
The most common PAA concentrations on the market for wastewater disinfection are 12 percent, 15 percent, and 22 percent active PAA.

Enviro Tech Chemical Services (ETCS) is pleased to announce a USD $8 million investment in a new chemical manufacturing facility in Levelland, TX.
In its first phase, the new facility will employ 25 people directly, with plans to provide 75 new jobs upon completion of a $5m expansion. Onboarding support will be included for all new employees through Enviro Tech’s new advanced training model, which includes company trainers that focus on safety, quality, continuous improvement and manufacturing efficiency.
The new facility, residing at the Levelland, Texas Industrial Rail Park will initially process around 10,000 tons of domestically sourced raw materials a year and will be equipped with state of the art automation, rail service, and environmental technologies. The advanced technologies include treatment and reuse of water, reuse of 90% of solid waste to recyclers, and energy-saving plant designs and equipment.
Enviro Tech Chemical Services (ETCS) is pleased to announce its new offering, the Kemio, a peroxyacetic acid (PAA) electronic disinfection testing unit. The Kemio, manufactured by Palintest, enables operators to conduct water disinfection validation tests at the point-of-use and get results within 60-seconds.
Critical water applications require proper disinfection dosing’s for effective sanitation. The Kemio, using electrochemical measurement technology, aids operators to quantify PAA solutions between 2-2000 ppm without dilution and is unaffected by the presence of hydrogen peroxide.
The Kemio is powered by patented, single-use sensors which generate an electrical current by reacting with chemicals in the water sample. Its electrical signal is the measurement used to determine the concentration of chemicals within the sample. This water disinfection detection device does require the use of a new testing strip for each individual test, but the actual instrument is built for industrial environments. In addition, all testing data collected is protected via an encrypted data transfer.
Enviro Tech Chemical Services (ETCS) is pleased to announce its Peragreen products, formulated for the control and reduction of slime, algae, bacterial and fungal diseases in various agricultural water systems, is now listed on Agrian’s comprehensive online Label Lookup directory.

Enviro Tech is pleased to announce that its slow-dissolving Enviro-Brom™ DBNPA Tabs are now EPA-registered for use as a drain sanitizer. This is a new-use EPA registration and represents the first for a solid DBNPA sanitizer in drain applications. DBNPA is a non-oxidizing biocide that has been proven effective against problematic drain microorganisms such as Listeria, Salmonella, Staphylococcus and E. coli. The low persistence of DBNPA means drain effluents and will not upset wastewater biological digestion systems. Enviro-Brom™ DBNPA Tabs are placed in the drain basket. Unlike fast-dissolving Quat and iodine rings Enviro-Brom™ DBNPA Tabs last up to 21-days depending on water temperature and flow. California registration pending.
