The report is a state-of-the-art review of the potential of combustion-type fuel additives in reducing air pollutant emissions from oil and coal firing. It contains two complementary parts: a review of the relation of combustion mechanisms to additive action in controlling emissions; and a review of experimental investigations of combustion-type fuel additives. The technical literature review revealed relatively limited quantitative data from experimental investigations on combustion additives in which conditions are well defined. However, there is evidence for some measure of control of emissions by fuel additives. The evidence for control by fuel additives of visible smoke and carbon particulate is relatively strong; that for control of polycyclic organic matter is somewhat weaker. The evidence for control of NOx is quite weak. Significant control of SO2 or total sulfur emissions by fuel additives does not appear to be possible, although SO3 emissions can be reduced. Practical considerations and other possible limitations to the use of additives are also reviewed.
