Abstract A cellulose bleaching effluent (E1) was degraded in batch conditions by photocatalysis using TiO2 and ZnO supported on glass Raschig rings. The effluent was completely decolourised and the total phenol content was reduced by 85\% after 120 min treatment with both catalysts. Partial mineralization of the organic matter was confirmed by total organic carbon (TOC) reduction, approximately 50\%. The residual organic matter shows a low acute toxicity as compared to the initial values and AOX values are strongly reduced after the photocatalytic oxidation. Molecular mass distribution showed that high molecular mass compounds were almost completely degraded.
