Chemistry and Physics of Flames
The results of combustion science are widely used for improving the efficiency of combustion processes and decreasing the environmental load. The most important results are the continously lower fuel consumption of vehicles, the reduced of pollution emission from traffic, and the production of more electricity with less CO2 emission. Engineering optimization of combustion processes is one of the most important practical applications of modern reaction kinetics.
