  • Joanna Pawłat EMAIL logo , Henryka Danuta Stryczewska and Kenji Ebihara


The sterilizing and remediation effects of the non-equilibrium atmospheric pressure plasmas are known for decades. Low temperature atmospheric pressure plasmas are considered as a promising alternative to conventional sterilizing methods, which have numerous drawbacks. Influence of various parameters such as discharge regimes, reactor geometries, gases, etc., on formation and effectiveness of plasma were investigated by many research groups. This paper presents the review of recently developed, environmentally safe technologies applied for the agriculture and soil remediation. The results of ozone soil sterilization and ozone influence on the DNA structure of Escherichia coli are described. The results of oxidants’ influence on humic acid are presented.
