Porous Surface DBD Plasma Source

The PASTA project uses a porous surface DBD plasma generator that was developed to create plasma microbubbles on in-situ water treatment system for long-term space exploration mission by the University of Southampton.

A porous surface DBD plasma generator can generate plasma activated air and inject into water for removing biological and chemical contaminated water extracted from celestial bodies. In the PASTA project, we use this technology for directly sanitising air by inactivating airborne pathogens.
