Abstract:
Recently, remarkable progress has been made in particulate matter (PM) removal using plasma discharge. This review will first introduce PM characteristics and oxidation mechanism of PM in plasma discharge, then summarize the history of PM removal using plasma discharge, finally discuss some typical patents on plasma reactors used for PM removal and the future development of plasma PM removal system.
Keywords:
Plasma discharge, diesel PM, oxidation mechanism, DBD reactor, fuel penalty
