The scale-up of photochemical or photo-catalytic processes is a hard task, requir-ing the correct definition of light distribution across the device. After a collection of examples of different photoreactor layouts adopted for water treatment, the main modelling issues are reviewed. Alternative radiation modelling approaches are compared. The reaction rate ex-pressions are presented, considering the dependence on light, catalyst and reactants distribution and including possible mass transfer limitations.

Abstract

The scale-up of photochemical or photo-catalytic processes is a hard task, requir-ing the correct definition of light distribution across the device. After a collection of examples of different photoreactor layouts adopted for water treatment, the main modelling issues are reviewed. Alternative radiation modelling approaches are compared. The reaction rate ex-pressions are presented, considering the dependence on light, catalyst and reactants distribution and including possible mass transfer limitations.
