Visible-Light-Responsive Catalyst Development for VOC Remediation (VLRCAT)

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Photocatalysis is a process in which light energy is used to activate oxidation/reduction reactions. Catalysts can utilize solar and/or visible wavelength LED lamps as an activation source, replacing mercury-containing UV lamps, to create a greener, more energy-efficient means for air and water revitalization. Develop rugged reactor test bed for catalyst testing with exchangeable light sources, optimize KSC-developed VLR-catalysts to treat recalcitrant trace contaminants found in closed-loop air systems such as ISS, and advance TRL to align with AES goals for FY16/17 scale-up testing.
