Abstract

The conversion of methane in electric discharges of different types and under electron beam irradiation are considered. The influence of nonequilibrium conditions of conversion in low-temperature plasma on the energy consumption, product composition, and selectivity is analyzed. The results of works on plasma pyrolysis, partial plasma oxidation, and steam and carbon dioxide reforming of methane in a low-temperature plasma are discussed. It is shown that the use of chain processes makes it possible to substantially reduce the power consumption for methane conversion by an electrophysical device.
