Abstract:Chlorine gas has historically been the disinfectant of choice in the United States due to its easy availability and relatively low cost. However, since the late 1980's, safety regulations have become increasingly more stringent on the producers and users of chlorine gas. The Uniform Fire Code revisions, Process Safety Management procedures developed by OSHA, and the Risk Management Plans (RMP) required by EPA have all taken effect in the last 12 years.
