        Nowadays a special interest is paid for studying and developing the plasma system
able to treat or to process fluids as gasses, liquids or mixture of them. The purposes are
multiple and they refer to different scientific and applied problems. Thus, new material
synthesis used in electronic industry or medicine and related field are produced from gas
phase using primarily low temperature plasma. Coating protection and surface treatment of
different materials used in manufacturing of the tools or utilities are also performed in a
plasma system produced in gas mixtures or in combination of gases and vapors of the
chemical precursor used in liquid phase. Environmental issue is also of great interest taking
into account that industrialization is leading to a dramatic pollution of the both air and
water. Thus, treatment of industrial wastes starting first with exhausting gases of the cars
and planes and ending with tail water is one of the crucial problem of the mankind facing
the global warming and shortage of the sources for drinking water.
        In the lecture principles are presented of the plasma systems used in treatment of the
gases, liquids or of the surfaces of the solid materials. Descriptions of some technical and
laboratory devices are also presented with their qualities and problems, which still remain
to be solved.
