Abstract
One of the main drawbacks of heterogeneous photocatalysis is the high consumption of electrical energy generated by conventional lamps. This study proposes a methodology to find the best distribution of light emitting diodes (LEDs), i.e., the least amount of elements, and the optimum distance between them in order to substitute conventional lamps in photocatalytic processes, and a performance analysis in terms of energetic efficiency, using for this the Electric energy per order (EEO) Figure-of-...
