Conversion of carbon dioxide (CO2) using gliding arc plasma was performed. The research was done to investigate the effect of variation of total gas flow rates and addition of auxiliary gases - N2, O2, air, water - to the CO2 conversion process. This system shows higher power efficiency than other nonthermal plasma methods. Experiment results indicate the conversion of CO2 reaches 18% at total gas flow rate of 0.8 L/min and produces CO and O2 as the main gaseous products. Among auxiliary gases, only N2 gives positive effect on CO2 conversion and the power efficiency at N2 concentration of 95% and total gas flow rate of 2 L/min increases about three times compared to pure CO2 process.
