Nonchemical (Photocatalytic) Cleaning of Water off Pollutants Resistant to Oxidation

Project Head
Vyacheslav Avdin, D.Sc. (Chemistry), Associate Professor
Ecology and Chemical Engineering
Engineering and implementing of new nonchemical and nonwaste approach of photocatalytic degradation of organic pollutants resistant to oxidation
  • Regulating the properties of the earlier produced catalysts for phenol and cyanides degradation;
  • The catalyst should interreact only with certain pollutants, and other present production impurities should not impede the main process of degradation;
  • Studying the kinetics of photodegradation, the kinetics of sedimentation of the catalyst pellets, elaborating a mathematical model of the processes of water treatment and removal of the catalyst grains, theoretical and experimental revealing of the optimal working characteristics of the pellets;
  • Computing and engineering the design of and producing a pilot water treatment installation as per the requirements of PJSC Magnitogorsk Iron & Steel Works;
  • Elaborating the method for modifying the surface of photocatalysts to attain the required properties to them (catalytic activity, selectiveness with regard to certain pollutants, etc.);
  • Developing a line-up of catalysts the properties of which are tailored for certain productions;
  • Attracting new industrial partners;
  • Creating a high-technology enterprise for catalysts production
