ABSTRACT An arrangement for generating an electric corona dis-charge in air comprises a corona electrode (X), atarget electrode (M) which is spaced from the coronaelectrode, and a d.c. voltage source the respectiveterminals of which are connected to the corona electrode(K) and the target electrode (M). The voltage of thevoltage source and the construction of the coronaelectrode are such as to generate a corona dischargeat the corona electrode. Means (4,5) are provided forcontinuously removing the air present in the immediatevicinity of the corona electrode (K) and dealing withthe air thus removed in a manner to render innocuousphysiologically harmful substances or irritants presentin the air and generated by the corona discharge, suchas primarily ozone and nitrogen oxides (Figure 1).
