The paper discusses Environmental Protection Agency tests of two types of corona reactors. One makes use of a bed of ferroelectric pellets across which an alternating current electric field is impressed. The other develops corona between two electrodes that have been energized by a fast rise time (nanosecond range) electric field. Data from the experiments to date show that the destruction efficiency for toluene at optimum conditions was greater than 99% in both the packed-bed and the pulsed reactor and that the corona reaction occurs at ambient temperature.
