ATLANTA - BWA Water Additives today announced that it has been invited to give a technical presentation on “New Non-Oxidizing Biocide Options for Biofouling Control” at the Annual Convention and Exposition of the Association of Water Technologies (AWT) at the Grand Sierra Resort and Casino in Reno, Nevada on October 23, 2010. The convention will highlight the latest advancements in Industrial Water Treatment research and development.
The AWT, billed as the largest association of water treatment specialists, provides business and professional education and resource support to over 500 member companies. At the AWT convention, BWA’s Biocides Technology Manager, Dr. Jeff Kramer, will present a paper that goes in depth on the efficacy, synergies, practical applications, and lack of detrimental side reactions of a new non-oxidizing biocide. This biocide effectively controls biofouling in industrial water treatment systems and overcomes many of the limitations of more traditional non-oxidizing biocides, like glutaraldehyde and isothiazolone, in eliminating algae, fungus, and bacteria including Legionella pneumophila, the causative agent of Legionnaires’ disease. Dr. Kramer will also discuss effective synergies with oxidizing biocides.
“The AWT Convention is the ideal forum to educate and inform fellow water treatment specialists of this new and exciting technology,” said Phil Mateo, BWA’s Global Marketing & Technology Director. “We are looking forward to working together with anyone who shares in the excitement that this technology has already garnered.”
Prior to the speaking engagement, and for more information, representatives from BWA Water Additives can be found in booth 203/205 at the AWT Convention Thursday and Friday, October 21-22.
