Cost effective solar photocatalytic technology to water decontamination and disinfection in rural areas of developing contries (SOLWATER)

Objective

Proposal addressed to the development and on site assessment of a fully autonomous solar reactor system to drinking water purification in remote locations without any chemical addition. Scientific and technological required developments will be base on photocatalytic generation, by using sunlight, of hydroxyl radicals and singlet oxygen species to, respectively, detoxify and disinfect contaminated (at trace level) drinking water. Detoxification system will use Toil supported catalyst and disinfections system will be generated by polymer supported sensitises photo activated by solar light. Final development system is expected to have remarkable technical features as well as social, development and environmental implications in developing countries.
