Processing of pollutants in dielectric-barrier plasma reactors

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Atmospheric-pressure dielectric barrier electrical discharges (silent discharges) can produce large-volume nonthermal plasmas and energetic electrons which can create substantial concentrations of free radicals. Gas-phase pollutants can be decomposed by these free radicals or by electron-induced dissociation. Basic plasma chemistry, laboratory-scale testing, reactor scale up, example applications, and specific electrical energy requirements for representative compounds are discussed in this paper.
