Abstract:An electrical discharge in water with TiO2 suspension has been applied for the decolourisation of methyl orange as a model of dye. The results showed the decolourisation was successful in the reactor. The increase in the flow rate of gas injection enhanced the decolourisation rate. Oxygen injection had a stronger influence when compared with Ar injection. The suspension of TiO2 improved the decolourisation. The results suggested the plasma‐assisted three‐phase reactor had a promising possibility to treat various kinds of wastewater.

- The objectives of International Journal of Environment and Waste Management are to establish an effective channel of communication between policy-makers, government agencies, academics and research institutions, and professionals working in the field, and to provide a forum for them to disseminate information. The international dimension is emphasised in order to overcome cultural and national barriers and to meet the needs of accelerating technological change and changes in the global economy. It will serve as a vehicle for the documentation and dissemination of what government bodies, research agencies, international bodies, universities, aid agencies, industries, and environmental scientists and professionals are doing in the areas of environmental and waste management.
