Abstract

      Attempts were made over the years to achieve economic and easy methods for water purification. This could well save time, cost, and earn a good process quality for many countries. This study aims to enhance the purification process parameters for Congo red dye polluted water  and introduce a developed methodology with an impact on many associated parameters such as the time for water purification process.  The research  proposes  a method to achieve this time reduction by mixing gold nanoparticle (AuNPs) (prepared by chemical reduction method) with Titanium dioxide nanoparticles (TiO2NPs) (prepared by sol-gel techniques). The resulting mixture is incorporated into PVA host to synthesize a hard disk used as a purification disk to treat the pollutant water. The pollutant solution was exposed to different light sources to complete the photocatalyst process. In this respect, sunlight, UV ligh, green laser, blue laser, and combined UV light and green laser were used as a photocatalysis sources. Experimental work was conducted to adjust the right mixture and the right combination of light sources. Results were recorded accordingly and showed a significant reduction in the purification time with less than half the standard period when the conventional purification process is used.
