The augmentation of the photo-Fenton process by heterogeneous TiO2 increased the reaction rate, in terms of COD reduction efficiency from 61% to 71%. Furthermore, the COD removal efficiency was increased to 84% when air was bubbled through the reactants. However, if the Fenton/TiO2/UV/Air process is to be utilized as a treatment for this wastewater, the separation of the TiO2 from the treated effluent would need further consideration.||Funding Details:||Not applicable||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Taylor & Francis||Copyright (published version):||Taylor & Francis Group, LLC||Keywords:||Photo-catalytic mineralization;Diesel oil;Ultraviolet radiation;Photo-Fenton;TiO2;ZnO||Subject LCSH:||Water--Purification--Photocatalysis
