Abstract : Hazardous gases within a fluent mixture such as polluted air, are treated by exposure to corona discharge within reaction zones of a plurality of reactor modules to effect chemical breakdown for pollution abatement purposes Electrical pulse energy delivered to the reaction zones to effect corona discharge therein, is monitored to optimize pollution abatement by suppression of thermal arcing within the reaction zones.
