Project Title Elimination at source of biocidal agents from fresh water environments by TiO2 photocatalysis
Project Description The aim of this project is to develop a photocatalytic treatment unit using different types of catalysts (titanium dioxide, graphic carbon nitride and a mixture of the two chemicals) coated in porous glass beads that can be applied at source for pesticide removal from wastewater in farms across Scotland. Potential deployment locations are wastewater storage tanks, rural SuDS (ponds), drainage systems and farmer’s yards.
