In recent years it has become evident that climate change is real. Consensus among the leading scientists is that climate change is linked to increasing concentration of greenhouse gases (GHG) in the atmosphere that enhances the natural “Greenhouse Effect”.  Carbon Dioxide is the most significant among these GHGs. Politically, various governmental agencies, industries and non-government organisations has all agreed that everyone should take co-operative actions in the mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions.

To stabilise the CO2 concentrations or reduce them, the emissions of CO2 should be reduced dramatically.  This is surely an enormous challenge since fossil fuels are likely to remain the major source of energy over the next 30 to 40 years. Given this situation, a portfolio of approaches is likely to be needed to drive CO2 emissions down without impeding economic growth. One of these approaches is to improve efficiency both in energy supply and utilisation.  This is in any events the industry’s entire desirable goal.

To tackle these issues, the International Flame Research Foundation in co-operation with its associate organisations, the Swedish Flame and the British Flame, has organised the Stockholm TOTeM 2003 and the Birmingham TOTeM Cluster this coming October and November respectively.  Therefore we would like to invite all our readers to register for…
