This study was conducted to investigate the effect of operational parameters in anodized photocatalytic metal membrane reactor (PMMR) for the removal of Isopropyl alcohol in electric wastewater. The effect of UV light type, the strength of UV light, the injection of TiO2 powder and air flowrate was investigated. About 70% of removal of IPA under the condition of UV irradiation (UV-C, 64W) in combination with an anodized TiO2 metal membrane was achieved within 180 minutes treatment, indicating that the UV/anodized photocatalytic TiO2 metal membrane process is a promising treatment technology for treating IPA in electric wastewater.
