UNC Researchers Garner Best Poster Award at ACE

University of North Carolina researchers Sara Rodriguez-Mozaz, Howard S. Weinberg, Ana M. Saenz de Jubera, and Alison C. Sykes authored the research poster, "Novel Strategies for the Characterization of Mixed-Oxidant Solutions for Drinking Water Disinfection," which won first-place in the "Water Science & Research Best Poster" competition at the American Water Works Association trade show in Atlanta.

The authors' research focuses on mixed oxidants, the on-site generated disinfectant that demonstrates greater efficacy in Cryptosporidium parvum inactivation, as well as inhibition of biofilm formation and lower disinfection byproduct levels than traditional chlorine. Selection criteria for the award included: quality of the research, significance of the research with respect to water supply and treatment, and presentation skills.
