The article provides information on how ultraviolet C-band (UVC) energy works. UVC energy is utilized to disinfect both water and equipment. It is said that UVC energy can result to the separation or degradation of chemical bonds which occurs when a group of organic atoms or molecules is subjected to UVC energy.
