The objectives of this study were to prepare a high-performance bismuth titanate photocatalyst and to develop a novel photocatalytic reactor with three-phase internal circulating fluidized bed photoreactor (TPICFBP). Bismuth titanate photocatalyst was hydrothermally prepared under optimum operating parameters such as hydrothermal temperature, reaction time and molar ratio of Bi to Ti. The photocatalytic activity of bismuth titanate using TPICFBP was evaluated for the photocatalytic degradation of Acid Red G (ARG). The photodegradation of ARG over Bi12TiO20 (12:1 molar ratio of Bi to Ti) under acidic condition showed the highest removal rate (92%) with wastewater flux and operating time of 10 L/h and 3 h, respectively. © 2011 Science & Technology Network, Inc.
