The Plasimo simulation software is used to construct a Global Model of a CO2 plasma. A DBD plasma between two coaxial cylinders is considered, which is driven by a triangular input power pulse. The plasma chemistry is studied during this power pulse and in the afterglow. The model consists of 71 species that interact in 3500 reactions. Preliminary results from the model are presented. The model has been validated by comparing its results with those presented in Kozák et al. (Plasma Sources Science and Technology 23(4) p. 045004, 2014). A good qualitative agreement has been reached; potential sources of remaining discrepancies are extensively discussed.
