Study on the Efficiency of CO2 Decomposition by Athermal Plasma

Project Details


As the main energy source for industry and modern human life, fossil fuels bring us convenience but also huge CO2 emissions. CO2 is considered as the main cause of the growing problem of climate change. To reduce the occurrence of extreme weather, net zero carbon emissions are becoming more and more urgent. Taiwan EPA committed to achieving long-term greenhouse gas reduction targets to ensure sustainable development, in line with the 10 basic principles of national response to climate change. This project applies high-efficiency plasma decomposition system to convert ordinary voltage into ultra-high voltage of hundreds of thousands of volts while the current is extremely small, so the energy consumption required is low. We’ll evaluate the efficiency achieved with this system in composing CO2 generated from combustion processes and the resulting CO can also be further turned into fuel. This newly developed technology has the advantages of high efficiency, low cost, and the carbon formed after CO2 decomposition can be collected and reused. This study is expected to provide feasible control technologies for domestic small and medium-sized enterprises to effectively reduce carbon emissions, complying with the trend of net zero emissions.
