Recent developments in photocatalytic degradation of pesticides and phenols in storm and wastewater effluent
Ahmed, Saber, Rasul, Mohammad G., Martens, Wayde N., & Brown, Richard J. (2010) Recent developments in photocatalytic degradation of pesticides and phenols in storm and wastewater effluent. In Proceedings of the ERE 2010 Conference : Transitions to a Sustainable Future, CSIRO Publishing, Central Queensland University, Rockhampton, QLD, pp. 1-5.
The heterogeneous photocatalytic oxidation process offers a versatile promise in the detoxification and disinfection of wastewater containing hazardous organic compounds such as pesticides and phenolic compounds in storm and wastewater effluent. This process has gained wide attention due to its effectiveness in degrading and mineralizing the organic compounds into harmless and often useful components. To develop an efficient photocatalytic process, titanium dioxide has been actively studied in recent years due to its excellent performance as a photocatalyst under UV light irradiation. This paper aims at critically evaluating and highlighting the recent developments of the heterogeneous photocatalytic systems with a special focus on storm and wastewater treatment applications.
