Combustion, the process of burning, is defined as a chemicalreaction between a combustible reactant (the fuel) and an oxidizingagent (such as air) in order to produce heat and in most caseslight while new chemical species (e.g., flue gas components) areformed. This book covers a gap on the market by providing a conciseintroduction to combustion. Most of the other books currentlyavailable are targeted towards the experienced users and containtoo many details and/or contain knowledge at a fairly high level.This book provides a brief and clear overview of the combustionbasics, suitable for beginners and then focuses on practicalaspects, rather than theory, illustrated by a number of industrialapplications as examples. The content is aimed to provide a generalunderstanding of the various concepts, techniques and equipment forstudents at all level as well as practitioners with little or noprior experience in the field.

The authors are all international experts in the field ofcombustion technology and adopt here a clear didactic style withmany practical examples to cover the most common solid, liquid andgaseous fuels. The associated environmental impacts are alsodiscussed so that readers can develop an understanding of the majorissues and the options available for more sustainable combustionprocesses.
