My study focuses on the application of pulsed corona discharge (PCD) in removal of aqueous organic pollutants. The degradation of non-biodegradable organics in water and wastewater treatment gains importance while substances like pharmaceutical residues accumulate in natural waters. The PCD application developed at LUT is more effective, environmentally friendly and energy efficient against recalcitrant compounds than conventional chlorination, ozonation or UV treatment. My aim is to study the interaction of plasma, water and reactor atmosphere in our PCD configuration in order to further develop the system and its operations. To achieve this, I actively look for interdisciplinary possibilities to research and develop a top solution for the removal of non-biodegradable aqueous organics.
