State of The Art Plasma for Environmental Protection
Plasma known as an energetic ionized gas. Several chemically and physically processes occurred during plasma generation. Plasma can act as source of chemical catalyst, heat and energetic ion. Plasma discharge both in air and water are efficient in the formation of chemically active species such as NO3, ·OH, ·H, ·O, O3, H2O2, etc. Most of these species are among the strongest oxidizing agents.
In addition, shockwaves, ultraviolet light, cavitations may also be formed. These reactive species and the physical processes, in turn, have been shown to rapidly and efficiently degrade a number of volatile organic Compounds
