Abstract: Since the mid-1990s, numerous studies on the treatment of drinking water by photocatalysis have been reported. Once optimised, the photocatalytic process can completely degrade numerous natural and artificial organic compounds. In this study, a hybrid photocatalysis/membrane process was used as a polishing treatment of surface water containing a small concentration of natural organic matters (i.e. total organic carbon (TOC) concentration of around 3mg/L) which may be difficult to remove using conventional filt…
