Join Halo, the collaboration platform for scientific innovation, for an interactive webinar with leading scientists and startups working in the field of UV LED water disinfection. Researchers will provide an overview of their latest innovations and how they may be applied to a commercial setting. 

Here's what you'll learn:

  • Safety and efficacy of UV vs. chemical disinfection
  • Benefits of UV LED disinfection instead of conventional mercury-vapor lamps
  • New potential industrial applications for UV LED disinfection 

This is an official event of Chicago Water Week.
