Photoelectrocatalytic degradation of 2,4-dichlorophenol in a TiO2 nanotube-coated disc flow reactor
Photoelectrocatalytic (PEC) water treatment is a promising technology for organic pollution abatement. Much of the prior research focused on material discovery and optimization. However, challenges exist in scaling-up PEC ...
Treatment of irrigation water infested with nematodes using a solar photoreactor
(Desalination Publications, 2020)
The objective of this study was to assess the efficacy of the disinfection of irrigation water loaded with the plant-parasitic nematode Meloidogyne incognita using a solar photoreactor. The photoreactor was comprised of a ...
Development of a Fuzzy Logic-Based Solar Charge Controller for Charging Lead–Acid Batteries
The design and implementation of a solar charge controller for lead–acid batteries is intended to supplement a component of the water purification module of the water treatment unit for natural disaster relief. This unit ...
Removal of azo dyes in aqueous solutions using magnetized and chemically modified chitosan beads
Azo dyes in wastewater coming from textile industry are detrimental, toxic, and affect the human health; therefore efficient wastewater treatments are needed. To contribute to the solution to this problem, in this paper ...
TiO2:Cex onto Al Clays for Photocatalytic Solar Water Disinfection
A novel methodology was employed to prepare new nanocomposites with photocatalytic properties based on Ce-doped TiO2 nanoparticles arranged over a layered silicate. The catalysts were porous materials formed by exfoliated ...
Water treatment plant prototype with ph control modeled on fuzzy logic for removing arsenic using fe(VI) and fe(III)
(Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute, 2020)
This study proposes a fuzzy control strategy embedded in a Siemens IoT2040 gateway developed for removing inorganic arsenic from synthetic underground water in a treatment plant prototype. The prototype is used to dose a ...
Portable point-of-use photoelectrocatalytic device provides rapid water disinfection
Portable water purification devices are needed to provide safe drinking water in rural communities, developing communities with low quality centralized water distribution, and military or recreational applications. Filtration, ...
Scaling up photoelectrocatalytic reactors: A TiO2 nanotube-coated disc compound reactor effectively degrades acetaminophen
(Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute, 2019)
Multiple discs coated with hierarchically-organized TiO2 anatase nanotubes served as photoelectrodes in a novel annular photoelectrocatalytic reactor. Electrochemical characterization showed light irradiation enhanced the ...
Comparison between solar distillers with and without solar concentrator
(Allerton Press, Inc., 2016)
In order to desalinate sea water by only solar energy using they were designed and built three distillers in which experimental measurements were taken to calculate production, performance and cost. Distillers by solar ...
Synthesis and Characterization of ZnO Nanorod Films on PET for Photocatalytic Disinfection of Water
(Science & Technology Network, Inc., 2015)
ZnO nanorods (ZnO NRs) were grown on ZnO seeded polyethylene tert-phtalate (PET) substrates obtained from recycled soda bottles at low temperatures (90 °C) from Zn2+ precursors in alkaline aqueous solution. The ZnO seeds ...
