Plasma pyrolysis

Reading about plasma pyrolysis suggests that a plasma arc ionises an inert gas, the explanation continues to suggest that steam is commonly used as the gas. This sounds nuts to me as H20 isnt formed of noble gases and therefore cant be inert. It seems to me that as steam ionises would produce HO and H ions which would react with any matter around it eg in waste gas streams formed from waste combustion.

So to my questions 1 - am I right (above) and 2 - would steam be a better option to pyrolyse wate matter than say argon or neon?

Thanks
