This paper addresses the risk-related problems of fluidised bed combustion (FBC). The scope concerns the following areas:

  • Fluidised bed combustion (incineration) as a risk-minimization technology for toxic and hazardous materials as well as for industrial and municipal wastes

  • Hazard and relevant problems with various bulk materials during the preliminary treatment and storage in different handling facilities for fluidised bed combustion

  • Operational problems of the process itself, such as sintering, fouling, erosion, corrosion, effects of fuel blend constituents on the emission, etc. and their effect on the equipment. 

  • Operational hazards and common start-up failures in fluidised bed combustion 

  • Fluidised bed emissions, both air-pollutions and ashes and the process performance effects on them mainly concerning the trace metal vitalisation and risk with the ash re-use.

Publication in the Journal
The Editor-in-Chief would like to remind all potential authors that publication in the Journal is open to all. If you have interesting results to publish in the field of, or related to, industrial combustion, we invite you to prepare a paper according to the guidelines given in the Author’s Guide on the website at:


Papers may be regular “articles” (typically up to 20 pages) or Communications (typically up to 4/5 pages). Review papers can of course be longer. Remember that figures and graphics in general can be in full colour. This advantage should be encouraged.

All manuscripts and associated files, proposed for publication should be sent by the Corresponding Author in a compressed/zip file, as an email attachment to journal@ifrf.net. This file should include a statement that the proposal’s content is unpublished material that has not being submitted for publication elsewhere. When an article by the author(s) is cited in the proposed article as “in press”, a copy of this article should accompany the proposed article and should be included in the compressed file.

The Editor-in-Chief looks forward to receiving your proposals.
