Two female engineers, Muznah bint Hussain Al Ajmi and Kholoud bint Abdullah Al Maqabali have achieved splendid achievement in their final year project 2019/2020. They have developed a Multi-torch jet non-thermal plasma reactor used in industrial, multi health and bioenvironmental fields.
Dr. Wameay Shawqi Abdulmajeed the director of the Department of Chemical and Petrochemical engineering in the college of engineering and architecture commented when he hosted on the program (from Oman) on Monday, 4th of January, “the result of the two students’ final year project is, in fact, an endless effort continuation since 2015 of their fellow students’ research papers which are published in international journals” he also added “we are proud of the project of non-thermal plasma. The effort of the two students made it possible for us to make a multi-burner rector to produce precious gases. As we are hoping to achieve positive results in the future to register a patent for the university of Nizwa. The project has health and economic benefits by saving energy, and operating with high efficiency”
Non-thermal plasma is a highly efficient and environmentally friendly method that can be used for many purposes in various industrial fields and environmental, health, and biological applications. The generated non-thermal plasma is also distinguished by its enormous explosive energy, reaching more than one hundred thousand degrees of heat. Thus, it can be used to stimulate chemical reactions and break down complex and toxic organic compounds. The generated non-thermal plasma is also distinguished by its enormous explosive energy, reaching more than one hundred thousand degrees of heat. Thus, it can be used to stimulate chemical reactions and break down complex and toxic organic compounds. Many researchers delved into complex research paths to discover the secrets and capabilities of this unique method.
The project owners spoke to the program (from Oman) about their plan to promote the project and the idea, as they have accomplished significant results which will encourage them to develop the non-thermal plasma reactor in the coming days for its multi-use in the industrial field. They have built a laboratory-size reactor in the university of Nizwa laboratories. The laboratory-size reactor operates with limited electrical of no more than 100 watts. The rector has been tested in one of the challenges facing humanity, which is to reduce the number of gases emitted to the atmosphere that contributes effectively to global warming by consuming the gases released to produce a compound of values and industrial benefits.
The project was able to produce a large amount of hydrogen and industrial gases of high calorific value and to exploit water vapor in very limited quantities with carbon dioxide gas in a multi-flame plasma reactor. The initial results of the project are promising.
