Abstract
The report presents the results of a study conducted for the Air Pollution Control Office to (1) identify gaps in combustion technology and (2) recommend a 5-year plan with priorities for effectively allocating resources for APCO-supported combustion R and D directed toward meeting projected needs for air pollution control of energy-conversion system by combustion modification. Combustion applications considered as elements of the plan include: central-station power generation; industrial processing; industrial steam generation, commercial and residential heating; gas turbines and external-combustion engines; and reciprocating internal-combustion engines. A 5-year plan of combustion R and D is presented, with R and D opportunities identified and ranked in five priority levels. The plan includes the description of 49 applied R and D opportunities in specific combustion application areas and 27 research opportunities of a more fundamental and broadly applicable nature. Applied R and D opportunities were ranked by a priority rationale. (APCO abstract)
