Environmental remediation

The highly reactive chemistry of atmospheric pressure low-temperature plasmas makes them particularly suitable for the degradation and removal of pollutants in gaseous and liquid environments. Numerous studies have confirmed the efficacy in reducing VOC (volatile organic compounds such as benzene, toluene and ethylbenzene), bacteria, particulates, NOx and SOx. The advantages of this technology reside in the limited investment and operating costs, in the possibility of simultaneously removing multiple contaminants and in the ability to mineralize the pollutants.
