REDUCTION OF TAR OR POLLUTANT LADEN-GASES USING A NON THERMAL PLASMA SYSTEM

Product Description:

  • The system generates non-thermal plasma via a dielectric barrier discharge reactor coupled to syngas produced from biomass gasifiers or other gases containing pollutants.

  • The system also consists of a high voltage generator system.

  • Non-thermal plasma is a phenomenon where atoms and molecules are excited to a higher energy level at room temperature.

Features and Specifications:

Benefits:

  • Ionization of tar or pollutant-laden syngas breaks down the heavy hydrocarbons into lighter compounds

  • Increases syngas quality and reduces operational issues related to tar

  • The system is easy to maintain and has a long operating life

Potential Applications:

  • Biomass gasifiers and other systems that produce pollutant-laden gases
