Energy efficiency improvements are critical to future economic and environmental sustainability. Global energy demands will increase by about 50% in the next 20 years driven by population and economic growth. The power generation sector alone will contribute a significant proportion of this increase. Fossil fuels, mainly oil, natural gas and coal supply the bulk of the energy used worldwide, and are expected to continue dominating over the next 20 years. Flameless combustion offers a technology to reduce emissions whilst retaining thermal efficiencies with wide application for the foreseeable future in dramatic reduction of the carbon footprint by up to 30%.
Associate Professor Bassam Dally was awarded his PhD in Combustion Science by the University of Sydney, Australia, in 1998 and he is currently Head of the School of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Adelaide. He has been involved in research, consulting and teaching in the area of Thermofluid Science and Engineering since 1991.
