DescriptionA sustainable infrastructure for life, health and well-being in the 21st century must provide many countries worldwide with access to a clean environment, to food and water, as well as to competitive economic and academic infrastructures. Energy is one ingredient towards prosperity, and combustion energy contributes significantly to power generation and transportation as well as to major industrial processes. However, because of the associated carbon dioxide and pollutant emissions, fossil combustion is often seen as a challenge to air quality and as a driver of undesired climatic change. In the transformation of the energy system towards more sustainability, alternative fuels are assumed to play an important role. Their combustion chemistry is being studied, including pathways to potential pollutants. Novel techniques are being used to address the development of databases and mechanisms for fuels and fuel blends beyond those used today. This presentation will provide an introduction to this topic with some examples from recent research.
