Corona discharges with voltages up to 60 kV (DC) were studied with the aim to induce chemical reactions in flue gases at atmospheric pressure. Various plasma reactors with different geometries of multi-needle arrays were tested. The power input was optimised by studying the electrical parameters of the set-up systematically. Both, solid and liquid electrodes were used in combination with the needle arrays. A precise positioning of the corona needles allowed operation without a ballast resistor. Formation rates for CO and the sum of NO2 and O3 are reported and discussed. Three catalytic anode-coatings were tested for their potential to decompose carbon dioxide.
