Title: A Novel Energy Efficient Plasma Chemical Process for the Destruction of Volatile Toxic Compounds

Abstract

The objective is to develop a novel plasma chemical process for the destruction of low concentrations (below several percent) of toxic volatile compounds from contaminated air streams. Such contaminated air streams are encountered in air stripping of highly-contaminated water and soil, and also in the incineration of combustible hazardous wastes. Our technique is based on the efficient dissociation of molecules via enhanced electron attachment to highly-excited states of the molecules produced in a glow discharge.
