Abstract

Microwave-induced plasma (MIP) is an innovative technology with potential application for waste treatment and clean energy generation. The study presents the investigation of an MIP torch operated with carbon dioxide and steam. Optical spectroscopy measurements demonstrate the dissociation of CO2 and H2O molecules. This work shows that the MIP torch can generate a high temperature environment with very active chemical species, making it a promising technology for waste and biomass gasification.
