Reduction NOX gas from motor vehicle 1486 cc emission have been done by using corona glow¬†discharge plasma which awakened with power source from modified system ignition of car.NOX Gas is¬†result emission of motor vehicle 1486 cc at 2000 rpm. Flow NOX source are joined with reactor.¬†Corona glow discharge plasma awakened in the reactor with knife to plane electrode geometry¬†configuration with power source from modified system ignition of car. Corona that happened in¬†reactor which containing of motor vehicle gas emission 1496 cc will yield ion, electron, and energetic¬†radical. NOX will turn into compounds which do not dangerous and it‚Äôs indicate that pollutants in¬†reactor was reduced. To get the decomposition efficiency of NOX it‚Äôs require to be done the¬†measurement of concentration of NOX before and after reduced. The biggest decomposition efficiency¬†of NOX which obtained in this research is 81.38 % at distributor rotation equal to 1500 rpm with¬†current equal to 80őľA. Anion and cation analysis show there are cation NH4+ and anion CO32-, SO32-,¬†and SO42-, that giving hypothesize that one of compiler compound of crust result of system prototype to¬†reduce NOX are ammonium carbonate ((NH4)2CO3), ammonium sulfide ((NH4)2SO3), and ammonium¬†sulphate ((NH4)2SO4).
