1 The process of plasma conversion of methane can be conducted in plasma or plasma-catalytic systems under oxidizing or reducing conditions. The source of methane can be biogas, which, is formed from various kinds of biomass, and has a different composition and content of methane. For this reason, not every biogas can be used for energy purposes. Biogas with a high carbon dioxide content cannot be used directly as fuel but can be converted into hydrogen, carbon monoxide, and longer-chain hydrocarbons. The obtained products can be raw materials for further chemical syntheses or be used for energy purposes. Chemical Engineering
2 Ammonia is a substance produced on a very large scale all over the world, but it can be also formed in various processes in the natural environment. It is a raw material for many chemical syntheses and is perceived as a hydrogen store, which is included in the Hydrogen Strategy for a Climate Neutral Europe developed by the European Commission. For this reason, it is necessary to develop an inexpensive and effective method of its decomposition, which could contribute to the development of electromobility. Based on the research on ammonia decomposition conducted by plasma methods at the Chair of Chemical Technology, it can be concluded that non-equilibrium plasma in plasma and plasma-catalytic systems can be used for the decomposition of ammonia.
