Groundwater remediation is a challenging engineering problem. Although there are many groundwater treatment technologies, most do not destroy the contaminants, and require combination with costly above-ground technologies. Photocatalysis, which is an advanced oxidation process, has been previously adapted for water and wastewater treatment, and has shown ability to degrade a wide range of organic compounds. A previous study in this research group has demonstrated its potential for groundwater remediation. Therefore, this research proposes and has developed a novel photocatalytic reactor configuration, which is particularly applicable to the remediation of soluble organic compounds in groundwater.
