The purpose of the instalation is to improve the removal efficiency of organic pollutants from wastewater to CO2 and H2O by introducing two steps of degradation with synergistic effect, as follows: a) Photocatalytic step – which is based on the degradation of organic pollutants by photo- catalysis performed by TiO2 semiconductor nanoparticles under the UV radiation action; b) MBBR technology.
