As electricity generators and process industries are increasingly seeking less expensive fuels for the generation of electricity and process heat, there is an ever-increasing industry-led emphasise on exploring the possibility of utilising opportunity fuels. Fuels of Opportunity: Characteristics and Uses In Combustion Systems considers a diverse range of opportunity fuels and their application by addressing the following fundamental issues:

  • What are the specific fuel properties of these opportunity fuels?
  • What are the combustion/conversion characteristics of these fuels fired alone or in combination with conventional fossil fuels?
  • How are they best applied in energy settings?
  • What are the technical and environmental consequences of their use?

In considering these fuels the book presents detailed updated information on fuel characterization approaches and fuel utilization technologies.
