Industrial exploitation of photocatalysis: progress, perspectives and prospects

  • A.A. Adesina
Article

Abstract

The removal of numerous organic pollutants from aqueous media using titania photocatalysis has motivated the need for commercial application of this technology for tertiary wastewater treatment and water purification. A discussion of the development of visible light-activating catalysts, pilot-scale multiphase reactor analysis and case studies with industrial significance is presented. An overview of different solar photocatalytic reactors is also given.
