Fundamentals of Combustion
The UK waste industry now relies on its many thermal waste treatment plants, both private and public, to deal with non-recyclable and residual waste streams and to generate useful heat and/or power effectively and efficiently from these feedstocks. Similarly, biomass, medical wastes and municipal sludges are also processed through thermal treatment plants. Fundamentals of Combustion is a two-part course that provides the underpinning knowledge for operating these technologies more confidently and optimising thermal efficiency.
