NE_2014_10 Industrial pollution arising from chemical production and petroleum processing is a growing environmental concern within the wastewater sector, and removal of these contaminants presents a multi-billion dollar problem. Traditional treatments are incapable of addressing these hazardous molecular contaminants, and current nanoparticle-based approaches encounter recovery issues, which reduces cost effectiveness. A novel approach to treating organic contamination utilizes a photocatalytic titanium-dioxide and magnetic iron oxide nanocomposite embedded in a graphene base. The use of such a nanocomposite results in a wastewater treatment solution that is recyclable, non-toxic, and highly cost-effective.
