The main recent advances in photo-Fenton oxidation treatment for recalcitrant wastewaters have been reviewed. Biodegradable intermediates and mineralized pollutants are obtained from recalcitrant compounds when this oxidation technology is employed in wastewater. However, the cost of the technology is one of the main limitations. Several strategies, such as new nanotechnologies, heterogeneous catalysts or chelating agents have been used to reduce the cost and enhance the efficiency of the photo-Fenton process. Moreover, applying solar energy cost can be reduced integrating biological treatments in the oxidation process. Direct UV photolysis is able to degrade pollutants (chemicals, pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, endocrine-disrupting compounds, and herbicides) in water. In this scenery, photo-Fenton is presented as an attractive and very effective alternative for the removal of recalcitrant compounds and emerging contaminants present in wastewater.
