Project Objective

The project aims to provide a cost effective solar powered method for mineralising the recalcitrant organic pollutants that biological methods cannot remove from waste-water from agricultural and seafood industries; particularly those situated in rural areas where power is scarce. The project unites cross disciplinary teams based in ASEAN and EU countries and the resulting sharing of expertise between centres of excellence will generate new knowledge on photocatalytic materials and processes.
