Combustion Technology for a Clean Environment
Selected Papers for the Proceedings of the Third International Conference, Lisbon, Portugal, July 3-6, 1995
The more than 90 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 research and development, these state-of-the-art will be indispensable to mechanical and chemical engineers in academia and industry and technical personnel in military, energy and environmental government agencies.
The topics covered in this book include wood, oil, gas and coal combustion, combustion of alternative fuels, co-combustion and co-gasification, catalytic combustion, NO, SO, soot fundamentals, advanced diagnostics, burners, fluidized bed combustion, incineration, engines, advanced cycles, gas clean-up, control strategy and clean combustion in process industries.
