Peracetic acid (PAA) is a potent new disinfectant that is very economical to use compared to the traditional products. It is also a much greener product. PAA is a combination of acetic acid and hydrogen peroxide (with a stabilizer) that degrades rapidly. It has replaced chlorine in many industries. Uses include: sanitation in food/beverage plants, agricultural facilities, wineries/ breweries, greenhouse equipment, animal housing, used to prevent bio-film formation in paper/pulp industries, wastewater treatment, commercial laundries and poultry processing.
