The last century has witnessed soaring gas prices, deteriorating air quality and alarming global climate changes. In recent years, increasing concerns have been raised with respect to the environmental impacts of energy consumption via the combustion of fossil fuels, for instance in stationary power generation and transportation, emitting greenhouse gases and air pollutants. As a result, governments now set more and more stringent standards. Hence, it is essential to understand and improve combustion processes, in order to reduce fuel consumption and pollutant emissions as much as possible.
