"Provide an abstract of 50 to 150 words. The abstract should briefly describe the objectives of the research, the results achieved, and the major conclusions. You should give special emphasis to the novelty of your work. The abstract should not contain any undefined abbreviations references. Also avoid introductory remarks, details of the method (e.g., the method has been used for many decades successfully) or listing your results."

Contamination of groundwater with colored and toxic wastewater causes many environmental problems and has adverse effects on human health. In this study decolorization of textile dye, Basic Red 46, were studied using advanced oxidation processes (AOPs) in a non-thermal plasma reactor. The reactor is based on pin-to-water high-voltage corona discharge by using a high voltage AC power source and air flow. The rate of the dye removal for 100 ml of this solution was investigated. The results showed that the corona discharge exhibited 85 % of degradation efficiency for 50 mg/l of basic Red 46 within 30 min of treatment time was achieved.
