About PlasmaAir AG

The german company PlasmaAir AG has been active in the field of plasma technology application and air pollution control for more than 20 years.

In the field of plasma technology, PlasmaAir is a leader in the design, implementation and commercialisation of advanced plasma processes. The emphasis is on plasma source development and its application for waste disposal, pyrolysis, CO2 mitigation and hydrogen production. Turn-key plasma systems are available for installation in customer systems.

PlasmaAir AG offers a wide range of services to customers in the field of air pollution control: from emission measurement to the conceptual design of exhaust air capture and purification systems to turn-key exhaust air purification systems individually optimised to the customer’s exhaust air problem. The main focus lies on processes such as adsorption plants, biofilters, bioscrubbers and chemical scrubbers.

Especially for the purification of exhaust air streams with high concentrations of volatile hydrocarbons, a cost-effective and resource-saving process has been developed and implemented in industry for various exhaust air problems.

In close cooperation with renowned research institutes and universities, PlasmaAir is able to tackle even complex problems efficiently and successfully. Due to its know-how in the field of small series production, flexible and problem-oriented solutions for specific exhaust air problems can be offered. Research and development has a high priority in the company and is promoted within the framework of R&D projects in cooperation with universities and research institutes.
