The photocatalysis reaction changes with the square root of the light intensity, whereas the direct degradation of the resin is directly proportional to the light intensity.

An alternative is to combine photocatalysis to previous physical-chemical procedure, a pre-treatment, such as coagulation/flocculation process, where coagulant agents interact with colloidal materials by either charge neutralization or adsorption, leading to coagulation/flocculation followed by sedimentation to eliminate most of the organic matter.
