Applications of corona discharges

This task is conducted in the Department of Water and Air Cleaning and concerns:

  • removal of nitrogen oxides from flue gas simulators in nonthermal plasma reactors with catalyst (a reactor with a positive dc corona discharge),

  • electrohydrodynamic effect in nonthermal plasma reactors,

  • application of Laser Induced Spectroscopy for time and space measurements of distribution of active particles in nonthermal plasma used in decomposition of nitrogen oxides,

  • investigations of properties of various modes of corona discharge,

  • modeling of kinetics of chemical reactions in nonthermal plasma,

  • oxidation of organic compounds dissolved in drinking and waste water,

  • bacteria inactivation in surface water (from rivers and lakes).
