Drinking water disinfection using UV-activated titanium dioxide – microbial and hygienic aspects

The project’s aim is the improvement of solar disinfection of water in drinking water tanks through titanium dioxide coatings. The self-disinfecting properties of TiO2 are to largely prevent microbial contamination of the water, thus improving control of drinking-water-borne disease propagation. The results verify the surface’s photocatalytic activity.
