  • New applications of beam–plasma systems for the materials production

    Beam–plasma systems (BPS) are known to be a great prospect for the surface modification of organic and inorganic materials. The present paper considers the plasma–assisted synthesis and deposition from the point of view of the hybrid materials production. Pilot setups in which the above processes occur in the electron–beam plasma (EBP) and combined plasma (CP) are described. The results of the ...

  • Ultrasonic Waste and Sludge Treatment

    Biogas is generated from sources, such as municipal organic waste, sewage sludge, muck or manure. Ultrasonication improves the digestibility of such organic material leading to more biogas and less residual sludge. Biogas is a byproduct of the decomposition of organic matter by anaerobic or aerobic bacteria. It consists primarily of methane, carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulfide. This makes biogas ...
