Over the last decade, circulating fluidization or fast fluidization has developed rapidly, superseding standard bubbling fluidization in many applications; for example, fast fluidization provides a better means forcontrolling emissions from the combustion of high-sulfur fuels and excels when used in boilers in steam plant and power stations. China initiated the study of fast fluidization in the early 1970s. Focusing on the substantial research cultivated in that country, with Kwauk at the leading edge, this latest volume in the Advances in Chemical Engineering Series is written in the context of the international state of the art and addresses some of the most vital issues surrounding this fluidization method."


Chemical, mechanical, and materials engineers working in fluidized bed processes; researchers in industrial, academic, and government labs; and secondary and graduate students in chemical, mechanical, and materials engineering.
