Micropollutants are organic substances contained in a number of preparations used in industry and households. Some of them are relatively persistent and difficult to biodegrade so they pass relatively easily through wastewater treatment plants, get into surface water and ultimately contaminate drinking water sources. The goal of this project is to develop an innovative technological device, which will be able to effectively eliminate micropollutants from drinking water. The core of the device will be a photoreactive column filled with a carbon sorbent modified with a photocatalyst in the form of transition metal oxides, which, in conjunction with UV exposure, can efficiently and safely degrade captured micropollutants and their metabolites through the process of photocatalytic oxidation.
