By transforming liquid water into plasma within a reaction chamber, it is possible to eliminate pathogens from the water, due to their exposure to electric fields, ultraviolet radiation, and shock waves.
By transforming liquid water into plasma within a reaction chamber, it is possible to eliminate pathogens from the water, due to their exposure to electric fields, ultraviolet radiation, and shock waves.

In a Plasma-based Water Purification System, water is injected into a reaction chamber where it achieves a plasma state through a high-intensity electrical field. The microbiological content of the water is destroyed by electroporation, oxidation, ionization, UV, and IR radiation. This method is both an efficient and affordable solution that could be applied in industrial settings and for distributing accessible drinking water at a community level.
