Chlorination by-products in chlorinated cooling water of some European coastal power stations
Chlorination by-products (CBPs) are formed as a result of the cnlorination of power station cooling water for anti-fouling purposes. Their production was studied at 10 coastal power stations in theExpand

How effective is intermittent chlorination to control adult mussel fouling in cooling water systems?
Mussel control in cooling water systems is generally achieved by means of chlorination. Chlorine is applied continuously or intermittently, depending on cost and discharge criteria. In this paper, weExpand
