Abstract: In recent decades, the rise in the generation of extremely toxic and refractory wastewaters, as petroleum
refinery plant effluents, is demanding increasingly efficient treatment technologies, among which photo-Fenton
advanced oxidation processes are highlighted due to their rapid and effective petroleum-derived pollutant degradation.
However, these systems are costly for their application at industrial scale, especially due to the associated electric
energy and reagent costs. Several strategies have been adapted for overcoming these limitations, including the use
of ferricarboxylate complexes or heterogeneous iron catalysts, the automated dosing of the oxidant, and even the
combination of different AOPs, such as photo-electro-Fenton or sono-photo-Fenton hybrid methods. Nonetheless, the
reduction of energy costs is not successfully accomplished. In this sense, further studies are required for minimizing
operational costs by taking profit of solar light and coupling photo-Fenton-derived processes to biological treatments
so industries can afford to implement these degradation systems and thus meet environmental legislation. © 2015
