Abstract: There has been growing emphasis on the development of coupled treatment systems (e.g., advanced oxidation-biological) for treating poorly biodegradable wastewater. An attempt has been made in the present study to couple photocatalytic (TiO2/UV) pretreatment with conventional activated sludge process to achieve improvement in the biodegradation of H-acid. The combination of titanium dioxide and UV light has been known to generate strong oxidants that degrade several organic pollutants into carbon dioxide via th…
