Abstract: This paper is dedicated to the discussion of possible plasma applications for hydrogen-rich gas production from hydrocarbons. Different types of plasma, both thermal and nonequilibrium ones, are under consideration. A special attention is devoted to experimental and theoretical results on hydrocarbon conversion in nonequilibrium plasma of pulse microwave discharge. A comparison of plasma methods and conventional catalytic technology is presented as well.
