Abstract


Abstract - River Narmada is life line of Madhya Pradesh, but rapid development of textile and other industries direct deposits their effluents in it and polluted the river. In this research, we investigate the photocatalytic degradation of textile wastewater using TiO2 and ZnO photocatalysts. The experiments were carried out in a magnetic stirrer photocatalytic reactor by using Ultra-Violet photo oxidation process. The effect of temperature, time, amount of catalyst, sample volume was investigated and the optimized conditions for maximum amount of degradation were determined. As results indicate, the photocatalytic degradation process can treat textile effluent and reduce the level of COD, TDS, and color. The percentage COD removal was studied that TiO2 was more effencial than ZnO. Experimental runs can be used to identify the operational parameters to degradation on large scale for recycle purpose.

 Keywords: Narmada River, Chemical oxygen demand, Photo degradation, Nanocatalyst (Titanium di oxide, Zinc oxide etc.)
