An extensive CO2 plasma model is presented that is relevant for the production of “solar fuels.” It is based on reaction rate coefficients from rigorously reviewed literature, and is augmented with reaction rate coefficients that are obtained from scaling laws. The input data set, which is suitable for usage with the plasma simulation software Plasimo (https://plasimo.phys.tue.nl/), is available via the Plasimo and publisher's websites. The correctness of this model implementation has been established by independent ZDPlasKin implementation (http://www.zdplaskin.laplace.univ-tlse.fr/), to verify that the results agree. Results of these “global models” are presented for a DBD plasma reactor.
