Combustion reduces the volume of waste that must be disposed in landfills, and can reduce the toxicity of waste.
Combustion can also result in significant energy and material recovery — waste combustion can be used to generate energy, and in some cases, the ash that is generated can be recovered and beneficially-used (e.g., as landfill cover, or as aggregate in asphalt concrete).
In addition, combustion ash must be managed as potentially hazardous waste under the purview of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), and must meet all applicable federal and state regulations for disposal.

  Encyclopedia :: encyclopedia : Internal combustion engine   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Combustion of the fuel charge inside a chamber causes a rapid rise in temperature and pressure of the gases in the chamber, which are permitted to expand.
In the broadest sense of the term, the internal combustion engine can be said to have been invented in China, with the invention of fireworks during the Song dynasty (some sources put the invention a thousand years earlier still).
All internal combustion engines depend on the exothermic chemical process of combustion: the reaction of a fuel, typically with air, although other oxidisers such as nitrous oxide may be employed.

 Internal combustion engine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The internal combustion engine is a heat engine in which the burning of a fuel occurs in a confined space called a combustion chamber.
The defining feature of an internal combustion engine is that useful work is performed by the expanding hot gases acting directly to cause movement, for example by acting on pistons, rotors, or even by pressing on and moving the entire engine itself.
Generally internal combustion engines, particularly reciprocating internal combustion engines, produce moderately high pollution levels, due to incomplete combustion of carbonaceous fuel, leading to carbon monoxide and some soot along with oxides of nitrogen and sulfur and some unburnt hydrocarbons depending on the operating conditions and the fuel/air ratio.

 Internal Combustion Engine @ LaunchBase.net (Launch Base)   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Where very high power is required, such as jet aircraft, helicopters and large ships, they appear mostly in the form of gas turbines.
Electrical ignition systems generally rely on a lead-acid battery and an induction coil to provide a high voltage electrical spark to ignite the air-fuel mix in the engine's cylinders.
Once the available energy has been removed the remaining hot gases are vented (often by opening a valve or exposing the exhaust outlet) and this allows the piston to return to its previous position (Top Dead Center - TDC).
