Last week’s IX Liekkipäivä at Aalto University, Espoo, Finland – organised by the Finnish Flame Research Committee (FFRC) – was an excellent event, with around 52 participants enjoying three keynote talks and 26 technical presentations in eight parallel sessions.

The theme for the day was ‘Resourceful industrial combustion: efficient, clean and safe’ – chosen to neatly tie-in with May’s IFRF Conference in Sheffield that was the focal point of IFRF’s 70th anniversary year.

All-in-all a very interesting and well-organised Flame Day.  What was immediately apparent to a visitor to this FFRC event was the range and depth of research underway in Finland (in both industry, research and academic organisations) – albeit much of it focused, understandably, on bioenergy resources, and the refreshingly youthful age and gender balance of the Finnish research community.
