Biorecalcitrant Reactive Black 5 was decolorized and mineralized by Intimately Coupled Photocatalysis and Biodegradation (ICPB) on TiO2-coated biofilm carriers in a Photocatalytic Circulating-Bed Biofilm Reactor (PCBBR). In ICPB, biofilm bacteria growing inside the macroporous carrier, protected from the harsh photocatalytic environment, mineralizes the biodegradable products generated by photocatalysis.
