An experimental study on a combined $De-NO_x$ process of non-thermal plasma and $NH_{3}$ SCR, which can be operated under low temperature conditions, i.e. $150{\sim}200^{\circ}C$, has been conducted. The test results confirmed feasibility of fast SCR reaction, which shows faster reactivity compared with typical SCR reaction under the low temperature conditions. The test showed that pre-oxidation step to convert NO to $NO_2$ is necessary for the fast SCR reaction, and the appropriate ratio of $NO_{2}/NO_{x}$ ranges from 0.3 to 0.5. Ammonium salts produced under low temperature conditions, effects of hydrocarbons on the combined process, the operation power of the process are discussed in the present study.
