Abstract Oxidative removal of a mixture of chlorinated ethylenes and aromaticcompounds in air in a pulse corona discharge reactor combined with metaloxide catalyst downstream was investigated in a field experiment. Dischargewas initiated by high-voltage pulses of 70–75 kV peak voltage and200 ns risetime. A flow of 60 m3/h was treated at11–12 Wh/m3 with catalyst held at 110°C at a spacevelocity of 6000 h−1. Removal rates of 70–90% havebeen found with input concentrations in the parts per million and thesubparts per million range. No partially oxidized hydrocarbons could bedetected in cleaned air. A closed carbon balance was confirmed underlaboratory test conditions.
