The Joint AFRC/JFRC International Conference was entitled Advances in Combustion Technology: Improving the Environment and Energy Efficiency and took place at the Marriott Waikoloa Beach Resort and Spa on the Big Island of Hawaii near Kona from Oct. 22nd through 24th.

Conference Hosts and Chairmen were Dr. Richard T. Waibel, John Zink Co., LLC and Susumu Mochida, Nippon Furnace Co., LTD.  The 3 day meeting attracted 90 delegates, 28 from abroad, and 59 presentations and papers.  The global spread meant that this meeting, like its predecessor, made a global impression of the benefits of applied combustion research.

The papers on the CD cover a broad spectrum of interests related to industrial combustion, energy utilization and related topics in furnaces, boilers, engines and flares.
