The photocatalytic activity of TiO2 incorporated foam glass obtained from glass waste from household activities with CaCO3 waste from the marble industry samples was studied by evaluating their ability to degrade organic pollutants in aqueous solutions under the action of simulated solar radiation and using UV-VIS spectroscopy as a simple method to monitor dye concentrations over time. Organic dye has been selected as the reference substance for degradation experiments because the dyes are stable at high temperatures and light and are reported as a major source of pollution, especially for the aquatic environment generated by effluents, mostly in textile industry. Given the characteristics of glass foam combined with current requirements in environmental protection to develop smart materials to combat climate change caused by environmental pollution, this study aimed to expand the application potential of cellular glass by functionalizing it with a material with properties photocatalytic in order to degrade various pollutants in the atmosphere.
