The preservation of the environment is of increasing concern at all sc ales, from individual countries through continents to the entire plane t. Combustion is known to contribute substantially to damage to the at mosphere and therefore this book reviews current knowledge of the mech anisms by which the main pollutants are formed in combustion systems. In most situations, pollutants are present as trace components and the ir formation and removal is strongly conditioned by the chemical react ions initiated by fuel consumption. Specific papers therefore define p recisely the general properties of combustion chemistry for gaseous, l iquid and solid fuels. A substantial part of the work also concerns th e impact on atmospheric chemistry of the main combustion pollutants: N Ox, aromatics, soot, VOCs, sulfur and chlorinated compounds. It is thi s combination of combustion and atmospheric chemistry that gives the b ook its unique character.
