    Power generation and other industries using solid fossil fuels like coal, lignite, oil shale and peat are responsible for producing large quantities of solid residues that are often chemically reactive and/or unstable and ...
  • Sowale, Ayodeji; Anthony, Edward J.; Kolios, Athanasios (MDPI, 2018-12-27)
    Energy from waste heat recovery is receiving considerable attention due to the demand for power systems that are less polluting. This has led to the investigation of external combustion engines such as the free-piston ...
  • Li, Lin; Duan, Lunbo; Tong, Shuai; Anthony, Edward John (Elsevier, 2018-12-21)
    As a possible new focus of oxy-fuel work, O2/H2O combustion has many advantages over O2/CO2 combustion, and has gradually gained increasing attention. The unique physicochemical properties (thermal capacity, diffusivity, ...
