Study on the Photocatalytic Degradation of Ammonia Nitrogen in Aquaculture Wastewater by Fe3+-Doped Nano-TiO2 under UV Irradiation


Article Preview

The Fe3+-doped nano-TiO2 catalyst with various amounts of dopant Fe3+ irons was prepared by a sol-gel method. The products were characterized by XRD and SEM. The photocatalytic degradation of ammonia nitrogen in aquaculture wastewater was investigated by using Fe3+-doped nano-TiO2 under UV irradiation. In the experiment, the effect of Fe3+/TiO2 dosage, the ratio of dopant Fe3+, ammonia-N initial concentration, pH value, H2O2 volume concentration, and reaction time, respectively, on the removal of ammonia-N was investigated. The experimental results can be stated as follows: when the ratio of dopant Fe3+ was 0.25% wt, the dosage of Fe3+/TiO2 was 0.7 g/L, the initial concentration of ammonia-N was 10 mg/L, H2O2 volume fraction was 4 %, respectively, if the reaction time may last 4 h, the removal rate of ammonia-N was expected to reach 97.17 %.
