The presence of sulphite & sulfide derivatives in the waste water leads to serious environmental and health issues. Therefore such waste water needs to be treated or converted into the less harmful forms before re-utilizing for the other purposes. However the cost of such treatment always remains burden to the industrial sector. It can be more feasible for industrial sector if there is a simple process to convert such wastes into the fuel. This will help to recover the cost invested in the waste water treatment. With this background, we have effectively implemented Photocatalysis system for the production of hydrogen from sulphur derived water . A promising hydrogen evolution rate (HER) of 5.58 mmol/hr was achieved using Pt-TiO2 photocatalyst with sulphite & sulphide based waste waters.
