The goal of this project is the development of a plasma-based filter system on a laboratory scale, on the basis of dielectric barrier discharge (DBD). In addition, the extraction of gas samples from the exhaust gas of running ship diesel engines is to be prepared and executed. On the basis of these gas samples, a parameter study of the plasma system, using the real exhaust gas samples will then be performed. This should enable subsequent industrial funding for the manufacture of initial prototypes.

The cleaning of such exhaust gases with sulphur, nitric oxide and soot emissions should also be carried out in a three-step process. In the first step, the carbon dioxide soot particles are gasified by means of an initial plasma discharge and the sulphur is precipitated. The sulphur particles removed in this way are then transferred to a storage container in the gas flow. In a second discharge at the outlet of the container, the remaining sulphur residues are stored by means of a plasma-chemical process, in a powder-form bulk solid.
