This book provides a detailed overview of the plasma fluidized bed. It is an innovative tool and generally combines plasma
process with another efficient reactor, fluidized bed, providing an excellent method for particulate processes over conventional
technology. The development and designs of typical types of plasma fluidized beds, mainly thermal plasma fluidized beds and
non-thermal plasma fluidized beds are discussed. The influencing factors on the performance of plasma fluidized beds are analyzed
in detail. The mechanism, i.e. the discharge characteristics, hydrodynamics, heat transfer and mass transfer are analyzed
to offer a further insight of plasma fluidized beds. Applications of plasma fluidized beds for different areas, including
metallurgy extraction, green energy process, environmental protection and advanced materials are presented. The book is a
valuable reference for scientists, engineers and graduate students in chemical engineering and relative fields.
