Non-thermal plasma abatement of trichloroethylene with DC corona discharges

Abstract
The decomposition of trichloroethylene (TCE) in air by non-thermal plasma was investigated with a multi-pin-to-plate direct current (DC) discharge at atmospheric pressure and room temperature. The effects of various operating parameters on the removal efficiency (RE) were examined. The experiments indicated that for low energy densities higher removal could be obtained with positive corona. For negative corona and 10 % relative humidity (RH) a maximum RE of 99.5 % could be achieved at 1100 J L-1. Formation of by-products was qualitatively analyzed in detail with FT-IR spectroscopy and mass spectrometry. Detected by-products for negative corona operated at 300 J L-1 and 10 % RH include dichloroacetylchloride, trichloroacetaldehyde, phosgene, ozone, HCl, Cl2, CO and CO2. The highest RE for TCE was achieved with a relative humidity of 19 %.
