Biocides are a class of chemistry created to kill anerobic or aerobic bacteria. The bacteria include sulfate reducing, iron reducing or acid producing types. The primary categories of biocides include non-oxidizing biocides such as glutaraldehyde and quaternary ammonium compounds among others and Oxidizing biocides such as chlorine dioxide or bleach (again, among others). Both categories have their advantages and drawbacks. Each scenario needs to be examined carefully prior to determining which biocide is most applicable. This category of chemistry is heavily regulated in Canada and only a certain number of companies are authorized to sell biocides in Canada as well as at the provincial level.
