The John Zink Company, on behalf of the American and Japanese Flame Research Committees, is organizing an International Symposium entitled “Advances in Combustion Technology: Improving the Environment and Energy Efficiency“. This event will take place at Waikoloa, Hawaii, on the 22nd –24th, October, 2007.

The call for papers has been issued and you can find it in the IFRF Calendar of Technical Events at this link: http://www.calendar.ifrf.net/event.html?id=232

Technical papers are solicited from industrial companies, research organizations, universities and others engaged in research, development and commercialization of technology for improvements related to combustion, pollution abatement and energy utilization in industrial furnaces, boilers, process heaters, incinerators and flares.  Topics of interest include:

  • Research into the formation and abatement of NOx, SOx, CO, UHC, particulate, noise and toxic combustion byproducts
  • Research ranging from fundamental combustion to the practical utilization of gaseous, liquid and solid fuels and wastes
  • Improved burners, boilers, furnaces, heaters, kilns and processes in all industrial sectors
  • Improvements in flaring, thermal oxidation or recovery of waste or process off gases
  • Related R&D in all aspects of industrial energy utilization, such as greenhouse gases, etc.
  • Diagnostic measurement and intelligent control of combustion, burners and furnace operation

Special effort is being made to provide sessions dealing with: Emissions from Flares, Lean Premix Combustion, Oxy-fuel Combustion, Particulate Emissions and Control of Carbon Dioxide and Other Greenhouse Gases. Papers discussing the issues relevant to regulations and compliance, development of measurement methods and/or standardization for monitoring and reporting of emissions, health and environmental impacts of emissions, source receptor relationships and air quality impacts, fundamental and applied research on emissions reduction, and/or energy efficiency improvements and case histories of emissions reduction and/or energy efficiency improvement projects.

Immediately after the AFRC-JFRC Symposium, 25th to the 26th of October 2007, the Topic Oriented Technical Meeting 30 will take place. This meeting will deal with “CFD/Simulation of Combustion Processes.”. More information will be announced in the MNM.
