About this book

The 75 refereed papers in this volume continue a series of biannual benchmarks for technologies that maximize energy conversion while minimizing undesirable emissions. Covering the entire range of industrial and transport combustion as well as strategies for energy R and D, these state-of-the-art contributions will be indispensable to mechanical and chemical engineers in academia and industry, and technical personnel in military, energy, and environmental agencies of government. Among the topics covered in this book are strategies; pulverized coal combustion; oil combustion; gas combustion; gas fired systems; biomass combustion; fluidized bed combustion; incinerators; internal combustion engines; new power generation cycles or concepts; control technologies; and clean technologies in process industry.
