The paper is resumptive. The results of different authors in the field of water-steam plasma technological application are presented. Particular attention is given to the water-steam plasma obtained with the aid of an electric arc. The experience suggests that the future lies with this very technique of plasma generation since electric-arc generators of plasma have high efficiency and practically no limitations both in capacity and in the flow rate of a plasma-forming gas, which is especially important for a large-capacity industry.
