A catalytic reactor using catalyst-coated optical fiber technology that will allow the control of light and its emission mode to quantitatively optimize catalytic degradation of off-flavor compounds. This degradation can be greatly enhanced by increasing the surface area of the catalyst. Coating individual transparent optical fibers and aligning them in a canister configuration allows the treatment of large volumes of water in portable and scalable reactors.
