Abstract

With the increase of unwanted pollutants in the environment, this study focuses on the abatement and release of pharmaceuticals in the wastewater stream by using the new plasma-activated-water (PAW) technology. PAW is a promising technique for the pre-treatment of contaminated waters, electric gas discharges in air over water produce reactive oxygen and nitrogen species with oxidative degradation power.
