Special Issue on Coal Combustion and Pollutant Control
Professor Minghou Xu is a “Cheung Kong” Chair Professor of the Ministry of Education of China, and
Director of State Key Laboratory of Coal Combustion at Huazhong University of Science and Technology in
Wuhan. Professor Xu obtained his Ph.D., M.S., and B.Sc. in Thermal Engineering in 1992, 1989 and 1986
respectively at Huazhong University of Science and Technology. He had coordinated a broad range of projects
related to energy and environment. Professor Xu worked as a visiting scientist from 1997–2000 at Instituto
Superior Técnico in Technical University of Lisbon. He was also a visiting scholar from July 1999–September
1999 at the Department of Mechanical and Mechatronic Engineering, the University of Sydney, Australia.
Professor Xu was awarded the Second Rank Award of Natural Science of Chinese government (2003), the
First Rank Award of Natural Science of the Ministry of Education of China (2002), the First (2000 and 2005
respectively) and Second (2002) Rank Award of Natural Science of Hubei province government, the Second
Rank Award of Progress of Science and Technology of Hubei province government (1995), the Ministry of
Education of China (1998 and 2000 respectively), and several other Third Rank Awards. The author of three
books (chapters), and over 150 papers and presentations, Professor Xu is recognized for his wide-ranging
research on reduction of emissions from combustion processes.
Dr Hongwei Wu received his PhD in Chemical Engineering in August 2000 at the University of Newcastle,
Australia. He joined Curtin University of Technology in August 2002 and is currently a Senior Lecturer in
the Department of Chemical Engineering. Dr Wu has substantial research experience in clean and efficient
utilisation of solid fuels, energy conversion, reaction engineering and chemical process design, analysis and
modelling.
China is the world’s biggest coal producer and consumer. Coal plays an essential role in supplying cheap
electricity to power the booming Chinese economy. In
spite of the strong attempts for the diversification of the
Chinese energy mix, coal will continue to be the dominant primary energy source for electricity generation
because of the escalating energy demand in China. It is
also foreseeable that coal combustion will continue to
be a key technology for power generation in the short
to middle term in the country, while the adverse environmental impacts associated with coal combustion and
other technologies utilising coal must be addressed.
The Chinese government has established two State
Key Laboratories that carry out significant R&D on
clean coal technology. One is the State Key Laboratory
of Coal Combustion, established in 1989 and hosted
by Huazhong University of Science and Technology in
Wuhan City, Central China. The other is the State Key
Laboratory of Clean Energy Utilisation, established in
2005 and hosted by Zhejiang University in Hangzhou
City, Eastern China. The two laboratories are China’s
leading research organisations in the area of efficient
and clean use of fossil fuels, particularly during combustion and other advanced processes.

This Special Section includes a collection of some
recent research outcomes from the two Chinese State
Key Laboratories on the understanding of coal reactions, mineral matter transformation, pollutant formation and control. The papers in this Special Section were also presented at the 2006 Sino–Australia
Symposium on Advanced Coal Utilisation Technology held in Wuhan, China, from July 12 to 14,
2006. The symposium was supported by a collaborative Australia–China project (DEST CH050013, NSFC
50 325 621 and 50 611 120 125) and the Chinese Government’s ‘111’ project (B06019). The symposium was
also supported by Curtin University of Technology and
CRC for Coal in Sustainable Development in Australia,
and Huazhong University of Science and Technology in
China.
