Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Corona discharge is an emerging non-catalytic technology for control of VOCs and NOx emissions from stationary (such as coal-fired power plants, utility boilers, incinerators, etc.) and mobile (diesel and gasoline vehicles) sources. Previous studies on the destruction of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) by corona discharge have shown high destruction efficiency and low energy requirements. In view of the low energy requirements at low VOCs concentrations, the feasibility of this technology for NOx treatment was investigated. This work is an experimental study on the kinetics of NOx destruction by continuous corona discharge plasma. Reaction products, effect of ammonia addition and electric power requirements were determined.
