Reuse Of Urban Water: Impact Of Product Choice
The toxicity of individual products has been measured in relation to a marine luminescent bacteria and a biological community within a grey water treatment technology. The results demonstrate that brand labeling provides no evidence about the relative toxicity of a product including those labeled as environmentally friendly. Overall, the only products seen to be a potential risk to reuse treatment technology is bleach and car oil with secondary risks associated with washing powder and vegetable oil.
