Copper and silver ionisation is essential for Legionella control.

HSE has backed copper as a biocide for essential use. 

ProEconomy have worked tirelessly over the last 20 years to create the reputation that they have and they have helped establish copper and silver ionisation as an essential method for Legionella control.

Nick Bedford MD of ProEconomy is positive about the derogation; ‘the review of copper as a biocide by the EC had a big impact on us and we are glad that HSE backed copper and silver ionisation as an essential water treatment method. We hope to build on this and are positive that there will be positive changes for copper and silver ionisation in the new ACoP L8. It’s time that ionisation’s contribution to Legionella control has a more balanced standing within official legislation.’
