Applications of terraplasma GmbH in the area of odour management:
• elimination of kitchen malodours
• elimination of farmyard malodours
Plasma based malodour management (mainly using ozone reactions) already exists in the gastronomy industry. However, these devices can only operate in the extraction mode. Our technology enables the construction of an air-permeable electrode and thus a device that operates in the convection mode. Compared to the systems currently available on the market, our odour-destroying effect is based on a process known as “electron impact dissociation” [Patent application "Plasma design for destruction of malodour" in Europe and the USA]. Miniaturized variations of this technology is feasible and would even enable the development of devices for domestic use – thus opening up the opportunity to enter the consumer market.
