The cleaning of sewage water using discharge plasma
By generating discharge plasma in water using high voltage, chemically active species with extremely high oxidative power, such as the hydroxyl radical, are generated. These can be used for the degradative treatment of persistent organic compounds that have been difficult to degrade with conventional sewage treatment technologies, at high speed and without selection restrictions. Broad efforts are being made to establish this technology and put it to practical use, such as understanding discharge phenomena, the control of plasma with power sources, verification of the effect of the degradation of organic compounds, and validation of treatment systems.
I aim to educate students to develop the fundamental knowledge in electric and electronic engineering and high-voltage and discharge engineering, as well as their applicable technologies, and to realize the power of execution in society, so that they not only have the knowledge and technical ability, but also a high degree of humanity.
