An experimental investigation is conducted into the indoor formaldehyde decomposition performance of an atmospheric plasma reactor with an airflow rate of 200 L/s, discharge power of 50 W, and operating voltage of 8.5 kV, utilizing a sensor network. It is shown that, given an initial formaldehyde concentration of ∼0.2 ppm, the reactor removes 15∼80% of the formaldehyde at a height of 107 cm and 20∼73% at a height of 180 cm after 5.5 hours. Moreover, it is shown that, in decomposing the formaldehyde, the reaction process does not generate O3. Finally, it is shown that the reduction in the formaldehyde concentration is particularly significant near the outlet of the plasma reactor and between the reactor and the door.
