The photocatalytic treatment of shower water in a pilot scale reactor: Experimentation and modelling
MetadataShow full item record
This research looks at the feasibility of photocatalytic treatment of real shower water in a pilot scale reactor (31 litres, 1 lamp). Experiments showed that 57% of total organic carbon (TOC) elimination was obtained after 6 hours treatment at optimised conditions. Further experiments were performed to determine the optical properties of the catalyst used (Aeroxide® P25 TiO2), which were then used to model the kinetics of TOC degradation in the case of single and multiple-lamps.
