Academics and researchers, engineers, utilities, and administration agencies


This webinar was organised by the IWA Disinfection Specialist Group.

We had a fruitful discussion on the critical role of disinfection in ensuring safe drinking water. While disinfection stands as a cornerstone of water safety, it comes with a complex challenge: the emergence of disinfection by-products (DBPs). These by-products, formed during the disinfection process, need to be carefully managed.

During this engaging webinar, participants delved deep into the intricate mechanisms behind DBP formation. Participants gained a deeper understanding of water disinfection and disinfection by-products, and acquire practical skills related to water quality management and safety. Whether you’re an academic, researcher, engineer, or a professional in the water industry, this webinar will increase your knowledge and skills needed to contribute to safe and sustainable water practices.

They shared proactive strategies and cutting-edge solutions aimed at managing and mitigating DBPs. From innovative technologies to strategic approaches, we navigated the landscape of safeguarding water quality without compromising safety.
