Can one transmit electrons to create an electrostatic charge through electrostatic induction?

Can one use a gas to create an electrostatic charge in an item by moving the air next to it?

If either of these are true, would it then be possible to create an effecient (I.E. one without directly touching parts) electrostatic engine/turbine, respectively?
