Development of a prototype high-turbulence solar photocatalytic reactor with thio2 nanoparticles immobilized in steel for water disinfection for agricultural use

Project: Research

Project Details


The project proposes the construction and implementation of a solar photocatalytic reactor that concentrates solar radiation on a static steel mixer impregnated with titanium oxide nanoparticles, to produce hydroxyl radicals, which have a bactericidal effect. It will be applied in water disinfection for irrigation of hydroponic crops
