Disinfection of Water with a UV-Catalyzed TiO2 Reactor

Photocatalysis, or ‘light-powered reaction’, is of growing interest in the water treatment. It is gaining attention due to its simplicity and efficiency in tackling many persistent contaminants that are harder to remove by conventional means. Researchers of this study will investigate the ability of UV-catalyzed titanium-dioxide pellets to oxidize and break down organics, such as
