Scholarcy highlights

  • Water pollution is a serious threat that has captured the attention of governments and scientific communities worldwide
  • Of 5, and the performance was favored by a higher catalyst load
  • The mixing effect with the corresponding to the 50 and 500 L curves, whose behavior is very similar. These results show that the recycling-feeding tank acts as a damping stage of the total organic carbon removal process
  • The Taguchi experimental design was applied for analyzing the TOC removal of commercial acetaminophen in a solar CPC photocatalytic reactor
  • The results differ from the reported studies with similar conditions, the variation of the solar radiation and the interaction of the pH with the catalyst load are the reasons for this discrepancy
  • In order to save monetary resources, a careful analysis based on these results should be made before deciding to scale photocatalytic reactors
