Abstract: Recent public concern about air pollution from production units has prompted more research to develop methods to reduce and control odors. Masking chemicals, oxidation processes, air scrubbers, biofilters and ventilation systems have been studied. Many new techniques for gaseous pollutants removal have been developed recently. In general, there are several industrial applications used to clean gaseous streams containing VOCs. The most common are activated carbon filters1, photocatalytic oxidation2 and non-thermal plasma systems3. Nowadays the third way is very promising because of the economic reasons and low power consumption. Non-thermal plasma processes have been investigated a lot during the past decade by many researchers for volatile organic compounds (VOCs) control in air. Many different types of low temperature reactors have been developed4. In all reactors plasma is generated and maintained by electrical discharge. In this research, the prototype non-thermal plasma reactor was proposed and its efficiency in removal of odors was calculated. The back corona discharge phenomenon was used for promoting the rise of the density of plasma in the reactor.
