Résumé

Viticulture is one of the crops most subject to pest control by fungicides. Their drainage towards the fresh water affects the aquatic environment, the fauna, the flora and especially the human health. It is therefore necessary to find an adequate solution to solve this problem. Heterogeneous photocatalysis is an advanced oxidation method for the degradation and mineralization of organic pollutants in water and air using semi-conductor (e.g., TiO²). TiO₂ P25 in suspension (0.75 g·L⁻¹) is used to treat Myclobutanil contaminated water and a commercial formulation Systhane™ 20EW, a fungicide produced by BASF. After 120 min of batch treatment under our conditions (pH = 6.7, Co = 10 mg ·L⁻¹), 96% and 98% of Myclobutanil and Systhane were removed with 94% and 92% mineralization, respectively. In order to avoid the recovery of nanoparticles of TiO² P25 after treatment, we have taken care of β-SiC foam cells. Under the same experimental conditions, 45% and 56% of Myclobutanil and Systhane degraded after 4 h with mineralization of 29% and 27%, respectively in recirculation in a fixed-light photoreactor by UV-A lamps. These results are very encouraging: filtering is not necessary to separate the catalyst from the treated water, it is very important for large-scale use of this process.
