Single STEP: A sustainable methodology of wastewater treatment is presented based on the generalized solar thermal electrochemical production (STEP) process for the conversion and use of solar energy. The STEP process utilizes long-wavelength solar radiation to heat the electrochemical cell, thereby improving both the thermodynamics and kinetics for photovoltaic-driven oxidation. As a proof of concept, the STEP process was utilized to oxidize and remove phenol as a contaminant from artificial wastewater.
