Clean water resources are dwindling due to the rapid development of industrialization, population growth and long-term drought has become an issue worldwide. With this growing demand, various practical strategies and solutions have been adopted to yield more viable water resources. Over the last decades, a great deal of interest has been focused on the membrane and photocatalytic process of organic compounds present in water and wastewaters by using a catalyst in the form of nanoparticles or nanofibers. The paper presents an overview of the photocatalytic process and the application of using nanofibers in the process. Different modifications of photocatalyst are described. Advantages of the nanofiber application for photocatalytic process are discussed. Moreover a short introduction of producing the nanofibers using an electrospinning process is given.
