A new foaming environment for a discharge application was described. The possibilities to obtain electrical discharge and to generate oxidizing agents in a foaming column with a dielectric covered plate-to-metal plate electrode system were investigated. The liquid and gas flowed co-currently in a compact apparatus. The presence of hydrogen peroxide, gaseous ozone and dissolved ozone was confirmed. This fact suggested that the foaming system could be useful for environmental protection. This method, belonging to the advanced oxidation processes (AOPs) can be potentially used in a treatment of the large volume of polluted gas.
