Titanium dioxide (TiO2), due to wide band gap, has a limited use in water treatment process because of its low activity under visible light. Such drawback is usually associated with the inadequate solar spectrum that activates its surface, i.e., most of the photoexcited electron–hole pairs tend to recombine, leading to a reduction in the photocatalytic performance.

ABSTRACT. Titanium dioxide (TiO2) photocatalysis is a chemical-physical process which attracted great research interest for water and wastewater treatment. Its potential for advanced oxidation and disinfection of refractory pollutants and pathogensresistant has been highlighted in many works
Titanium (Ti) occurs naturally in soils and as highly purified titanium dioxide (TiO2) in many commercial products that have been used for decades. We report for the first time the occurrence, characterization, and removal of nano- and larger-sized Ti at wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs). At one WWTP studied in detail, raw sewage contained 100 to nearly 3000 μg Ti/L. Ti larger than 0.7 μm .
The Titanium AOP System is a physical process that works by exploiting the photo-catalytic effect created when high energy Ultra Violet UV light (at 254 nm) strikes Titanium Dioxide (TiO2) in the presence of water. The high energy UV excites the surface of the TiO2 at the water interface resulting in a photo-catalytic oxidation reaction.
The aim of this study was to investigate antibiotic amoxicillin removal from synthetic pharmaceutical wastewater. Titanium dioxide (TiO2) was used in photocatalysis treatment method under natural solar irradiation in a tubular reactor. The photocatalytic removal efficiency was evaluated by the reduction in amoxicillin concentration. The effects of antibiotics concentration, TiO2 dose .

The performance of metal oxides such as titanium dioxide (TiO 2 ), in the conversion of solar energy into chemical energy, is determined by semiconducting properties. The conversion process is closely related to the light-induced reactivity between oxide semiconductors and water, which may lead to partial water oxidation and consequently water disinfection.
A commercially significant titanium compound is titanium dioxide, which is applied as a pigment in paint, synthetics, paper, fiber and cosmetics production. However, titanium application does lead to the production of water pollutants that disable direct discharge of wastewater.
