Evaluation of photo-oxidation effect using TiO2 coated EPS (expanded polypropylene) in the stagnant stream channel
Keywords:TiO2, Algae blooms, Chlorophyll-a real-time data, TiO2 coated balls
AbstractThe photocatalyst is not directly applied to the water, because the form of nanoparticle. In this study, we developed a photo-oxidation ball to the improvement of water quality in stagnant water. And we used real-time monitoring data of chl-a to verify the water purification ability of developed balls. TiO2 coated EPS balls were applied to the stagnant channel. We monitored during the algae bloom period. As a result, we could be confirmed that chlorophyll-a was decreased in the installation places the ball during the daytime. However, at night, chlorophyll-a was increased. Algae control by the photo-oxidation balls in the open space was more of a growth inhibition than a remove.
