    Abstract

    In the treatment of household wastewater viruses are hard to eliminate. A new technique is described which tackles this major problem. The MS2 (ATCC15597-B1) virus was used as a surrogate to estimate the inactivation rates for enteric viruses by a hot (150 °C) air bubble column evaporator (HBCE) system Its surface charging properties obtained by dynamic light scattering, have been studied in a range of aqueous salt solutions and secondary treated synthetic sewage water. A combination of MS2 virus surface charge properties with thermal inactivation rates, and an improved double layer plaque assay technique, allows an assessment of the efficiency of the HBCE process for virus removal in water. The system is a new energy efficient treatment for water reuse applications.
