Recently, the pulsed power technology led us to generate discharge plasma in high pressure gas, liquid and solid environment. The discharge plasmas have a lot of functions such as an intense electric field, a large current flow, a chemically active radical formation, a shockwave generation, and an ultraviolet irradiation. Using the functions, the pollution control technologies, including exhaust gases treatment, ozone generation, water treatment, and material destruction or separation, were developed in laboratory. In the paper, the NO removal by ns pulsed discharge plasma and the aggregate recycling by the discharge inside of concrete would be introduced.
