One-day meeting of the IOP on Combustion and NOx in the Environment, 21 April, Nottingham

(Formerly known as Low NOx Combustion)

21 April 2010, East Midlands Conference Centre, University of Nottingham, UK Organised by the IOP Combustion Group and the IOP Environmental Physics. This meeting is co-sponsor by the Combustion Institute British Section.

Nitrogen oxides are major pollutants from combustion and their emission is strictly regulated by law and technologically challenging to reduce. This meeting will focus on the fundamentals and practical aspects of low NOx technologies and will be of interest to academics and industrialists alike.
