Application of Photo-Fenton-Membrane Technology in Wastewater Treatment: A Review

Membranes (Basel). 2023 Mar 23;13(4):369. doi: 10.3390/membranes13040369.


Photo-Fenton coupled with membrane (photo-Fenton-membrane) technology offers great potential benefits in future wastewater treatment because it can not only degrade refractory organics, but also separate different pollutants from water; additionally, it often has a membrane-self-cleaning ability. In this review, three key factors of photo-Fenton-membrane technology, photo-Fenton catalysts, membrane materials and reactor configuration, are presented. Fe-based photo-Fenton catalysts include zero-valent iron, iron oxides, Fe-metal oxides composites and Fe-based metal-organic frameworks. Non-Fe-based photo-Fenton catalysts are related to other metallic compounds and carbon-based materials. Polymeric and ceramic membranes used in photo-Fenton-membrane technology are discussed. Additionally, two kinds of reactor configurations, immobilized reactor and suspension reactor, are introduced. Moreover, we summarize the applications of photo-Fenton-membrane technology in wastewater, such as separation and degradation of pollutants, removal of Cr(VI) and disinfection. In the last section, the future prospects of photo-Fenton-membrane technology are discussed.
