A nonthermal plasma produced by the streamer corona discharge at an atmospheric pressure was investigated for the treatment of fluorocarbon. The effective treatment of fluorocarbons was performed by controlling the discharge parameters of the plasma. The decomposition rate of fluorocarbon was investigated by varying (a) discharge modes, (b) dilution gases and (c) discharge characteristics, that is, applied voltage VA-K of the main discharge gap and its steepness dVA-K/dt. The maximum decomposition rate of 92% was achieved by the streamer corona discharge.
