Project description

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) are harmful for

humans and the environment and they occur in certain waste streams. In this project, this problem is tackled by the combination of a non-thermal plasma and a catalyst. The abatement of trichloroethylene and toluene is studied in a

plasma catalytic reactor.
