Lack of reliable detection technology slows PAA regulation
Commonly employed sensors cannot be proven to be effective. This, paired with a lack of federal regulation for exposure to the chemical, makes it difficult for plant operators.
Peracetic acid (PAA) is widely used in poultry plants, but a lack of reliable technology to measure its concentration in the atmosphere makes it difficult for regulators and plant operators to accurately measure the airborne chemical in the plant so worker exposure can be accurately calculated.
