Heterogeneous photocatalysis: Design and experimental characterization of a new photocatalytic reactor for wastewater treatment

Sarah M Mercer
The objective of this study is to promote photocatalytic wastewater treatment by proposing a reactor design that employs a catalyst-coated, rotating, corrugated drum to increase the surface area, induce agitation and promote reactant and photon transfer to the surface. Corrugation profiles with surface areas ranging from 405 cm2 to 3650 cm2 were considered---the addition of corrugations improved the phenol degradation rate by up to 200%. Based on an analysis of rotational speed and initial pollutant...
