Alternate Fuels, Combustion and Air Pollution Control

Course Description

This course is focused on the use of alternate fuels, and their effect on
combustion and air pollution control systems. Examples of alternate fuels
are wood waste, recovered cooking oils, used oils, solid fuels, and wastes.
The practical experience of the instructors allows presentation of myriad
applications spanning many industries. The goal of the course is to promote
proper choice of combustion and air pollution control systems, and safe and
economical operation while meeting regulatory requirements. This course will
provide an understanding of control devices and strategies for combustion,
gasification, pyrolysis, and incineration of a variety of waste fuels and
conventional fossil fuels, issues on fuel switching, and limiting air

Objective is to give attendees a good understanding of alternate fuels,
their effect on combustion and air pollution control, and how to cost out
fuel switching projects.

Who should attend -- those involved in regulating, purchasing, designing and operating alternate fuel systems and related air pollution control systems.
A scientific, engineering or operations background would be beneficial to
the attendees. No prerequisites are required. Types of firms with need of
this course are utilities, chemical, petrochemical and pharmaceutical firms,
pulp and paper, stone clay and glass, general manufacturing, waste treatment
firm with interest in thermal processes, engineering firms, consultants and

Outline: The course is primarily lecture, using PowerPoint, DVDs, and
whiteboard Sections follow: Section 1 Introduction to alternate fuels,

Comments from course attendees on NOx E-Learning Course:

"I really liked the course organization, especially all the relevant references, which were easy to find via the Internet. This eliminated the time wasted in going to a library and looking for a reference as in the old days. The Instructor did a wonderful job in organizing the course. It was unique to me in that I was able to print all relevant materials and study them at my own convenience and on my own time schedule. Thank you for a job well done."

Comments from course attendees on Combustion and Air Pollution Course:

"Once again, I enjoyed your course thoroughly and felt that it has given me greater insight into combustion theories and systems."

“Just wanted to say how much I learned from it--and I'd certainly recommend it to others.”

“Since I'm completely new to combustion engineering and coming at it from the environmental side, it seemed the easiest way to get my feet wet and find out what direction I should be reading in. My hunch paid off!”
