Combustion Emissions: Formation, Reaction, and Removal of Trace Metals in Combustion Products presents the latest scientific knowledge on combustion, with a particular focus on the behavior of elements in this high temperature method of energy generation. The book describes methods of control and establishes a solid base of understanding for future research. Encyclopedic in style and consistent in format, each chapter systematically presents a complete analysis of the combustion behavior of each element and guides the reader in resolving specific problems. This includes source levels in fuels and fuel usage, emission and pollutant release into the environment and environmental effects, and more.
Societal impacts and environmental concerns are considered throughout, highlighting sustainability aspects across a diverse range of applications, such as within power plants, automobiles and propulsion.
- Presents the latest research in a very systematic way
- Includes methods of control and establishes a base of understanding for future research in energy systems
- Analyzes the individual behavior of 34 elements, considering their chemistry, nature and environmental impacts

Professor Emeritus, University of California Santa Barbara
Dr. Keith Schofield is President/CEO of ChemData Research Corporation and Emeritus Research Professor at the Materials Research Laboratory, University of California, Santa Barbara, CA. He is currently developing and supplying the technology for a new, low cost method, to control mercury emissions from coal combustors. Before taking up this position in 2009, Dr. Schofield was a Research professor at the University of California studying the combustion chemistry of traces of mercury and other trace metals that exist in fuel emissions. He is the CEO of ChemData Research and is a member of The Combustion Institute. He received his PhD in Physical Chemistry, and studied for his BA, from Cambridge University, United Kingdom.
