Pollutants from Combustion Formation and Impact on Atmospheric Chemistry
The preservation of the environment is of increasing concern at all scales, from individual countries through continents to the entire planet. Combustion is known to contribute substantially to damage to the atmosphere and therefore this book reviews current knowledge of the mechanisms by which the main pollutants are formed in combustion systems. In most situations, pollutants are present as trace components and their formation and removal is strongly conditioned by the chemical reactions initiated by fuel consumption. Specific papers therefore define precisely the general properties of combustion chemistry for gaseous, liquid and solid fuels. A substantial part of the work also concerns the impact on atmospheric chemistry of the main combustion pollutants: NOx, aromatics, soot, VOCs, sulfur and chlorinated compounds. It is this combination of combustion and atmospheric chemistry that gives the book its unique character.
