Byproducts Generation Characteristics of Non-thermal Plasma for NO Conversion: Effect of Reaction Conditions
Over the years, the combined Non-thermal Plasma (NTP) denitrification process which is used for decomposition of NOx has have become an application technology with great potential. And the formation of byproducts, such as N2O and O-3, which is an important factor that interfere with NO removal efficiency, has a high research value. In present study, HZSM-5 molecular sieve was selected as the packed material in dielectric barrier discharge reactor to investigate the effect of reaction conditions, such as with/without packed bed, discharge power, inner electrode diameter, electrode shape and operation time, on formation and conversion characteristics of byproducts (N2O and O-3). Results showed that the presence of HZSM-5 pellets in discharge zone increases the discharge power, NO removal efficiency and the concentration of the byproducts in the outlet. The optimization of electrode diameter and the utilization of screw thread electrode increased the NO removal efficiency and the yield of N2O and O-3. The pellets temperature increases with the operation time and the enhancement of input energy, which has different effects on O(3)and N2O. These results provide some new methods for improving the NTP-assisted catalytic denitrification process.
