Photocatalytic Mineralization of Chlorazol Black E (Direct Black 38) over Zeolite-Supported Titania-Based Catalysts

Commercial dyes make up the palette that is used to color our world. Synthetic dyes have a strong resistance to fading while simultaneously providing an array of bright colors in the modern textile products. Guidelines and regulations for proper disposal and treatment have become stricter in order to protect the environment and human health. Because of this fact, dye manufacturers have become more interested in developing effective methods to remediate synthetic dyes. The toxicity of these synthetic dyes has led to increased research for improved treatment and disposal of textile dye effluents [1]. If wastewater effluents are not completely decolorized prior to discharge, the burden of treatment falls upon publicly owned water treatment facilities. Once in a publicly owned water treatment facility, wastewater effluent will end up in sludges
