A UVC based advanced photooxidation reactor design for remote households and communities not connected to a municipal drinking water system

See A household scale UVC/TiO2 based advanced oxidation process (AOP) reactor was developed for drinking water treatment. A 3D UVC absorption model to predict light energy absorbed by the photocatalyst coatings was developed and agreed with direct light irradiance measurements. The tubular reactor was used with and without titanium dioxide (TiO2) coated plates lining inside and was found to simultaneously inactivate a high initial concentration of Escherichia coli and degrade uracil, which was used as a synthetic water pollutant. The reactor, lined with replaceable TiO2 coated plates, degraded uracil by 34.2% and natural organic matter in raw lake water by 33.2% within…
