The aim of the proposed project is the determination of parameters for efficient decontamination and/or sterilisation of thermally sensitive materials at atmospheric pressure. For this purpose, the surface dielectric barrier discharges will be used for plasma-activation of gaseous media to produce the atmosphere with a high-ratio of ozone and hydrogen peroxide. These active species are generated in the oxygen gas with an admixture of water vapour. The decontamination potential of produced plasma-activated media will be evaluated by microbiological testing. The main results of the project is a prototype of the decontamination device and verified technology for the construction of scalable commercial plasma devices (decontamination chambers) for utilization in medicine and bio-research.
The commercialisation of reducing plasma generated at atmospheric pressure for in-line industrial applications
|125 000 EUR, ROPLASS contribution 22 000 EUR
The aim of the project is the commercialisation of plasma technology developed recently at R&D Center for Low-Cost Plasma and Nanotechnology Surface Modifications (CEPLANT) at Masaryk University in Brno. The integration of the plasma units for treatment of surfaces in reducing environments (hydrogen and argon) and their mixtures with nitrogen will be employed for the prototype of the commercially available roll-to-roll line for applications in the area of flexible and printed electronics.
Glass modification by areal plasma for paintings or coatings
|OP EIC / IraSME
|Czech Republic + Germany
GLAREAL COAT is a consortium of companies and research organisations in Czech Republic and Germany. The project aims to investigate and develop the potential of areal atmospheric pressure plasmas for glass surface applications, e.g. homogeneous cleaning prior to coating steps, adhesion improvements of paintings in safety glasses or reduction of chemical waste in comparison to traditional wet chemical cleaning.
