Currently, light is transmitted through polluted feed water to reach a photocatalyst coating on a membrane surface. This paper presents the proof-of-principle for a novel configuration in which ultraviolet (UV) light is instead transmitted through the membrane substrate to reach the photocatalyst surface. Titanium dioxide coated onto a light-conducting porous glass membrane was tested by filtration with a model humic acid foulant. Results demonstrated light successfully transmitted to the catalyst and effectively cleaned the membrane equivalent to chemicals for more sustainable water treatment. View this paper.
