This week, the IFRF Handbook publishes four combustion Files relating to the manufacture and properties of Coke Oven Gas.
These will be followed in the coming weeks by similar information for Blast Furnace Gas and BOS Gas (a by-product of oxysteel making). In addition to their direct use within the Handbook, these files also constitute part of the build up to TOTeM25, where the topic under discussion will include low calorific value gases and the potential to expand their deployment in high temperature processes. The IFRF is grateful to Peter Hoppesteyn and Jan van der Bemt of Corus IJmuiden for the preparation of this material
To read or download this and other recently published files, please go to www.handbook.ifrf.net, and select ‘New Combustion Files’ after accepting the disclaimer screen. Other Combustion Files on related themes may be found by using the links built into these CFs and/or by searching the Handbook with the keywords like ‘fuel’ or ‘gas’ or ‘properties’ or ‘characterisation’ – the search will be more focused if you use a combination of these or similar words and choose the option ‘All of these words’
Also this week, the Handbook is please to announce the consolidation of it’s Editorial Board. During the summer, a number of leading combustion figures from a wide range of disciplines and countries has agreed to join the editorial board and to support the development of new Handbook material as well as acting as the last check in the refereeing and quality control process. IFRF Individual Members wishing to have more details of the Handbook Editorial Board should go to www.ifrf.net and select Expertise Exchange/Members List/Administration Sector (in second drop down file).
