Chlorothalonil and the filter technology from FEWATEC

20.07.2020

The FEWATEC Cristal water filter removes chlorothalonil.
Chlorothalonil was for years one of the 10 most sold fungicides in Switzerland
It has been used as a broad-spectrum fungicide on both agricultural and non-agricultural land (e.g. golf courses).
In 2019, the Swiss population became aware of the contamination of individual drinking water samples with this fungicide. In the drinking water samples objected to, the measured values of the detected chlorothalonil metabolites were above the legal limit of 0.1 µg/liter. Since 1 January 2020, the use of Chlorothalonil has been prohibited in Switzerland.
