Abstract Efficient fossil energy use with low pollution in all kinds of power plants is of growing interest in all industrial sectors. The use of energy is growing steadily by many countries worldwide due to the greater desire for enhancing better standards of living and to increase productivity. Efficient energy use is favorable for better productivity product quality, costs, and quality of human life but the energy use adversely impacts our environment. During the past decade energy demands from China and India have grown significantly and is projected to grow even more in the coming decades as they enhance their living standards and productivity. This clearly requires close examination of the available methods of fossil fuel energy conversion as well as advanced methods that will provide increased efficiency and pollution reduction. This section, after brief review on historical perspectives on energy conversion, provides a short review on the various methods used for energy conversion in industrial power plants as well as new innovative methods that are now beginning to become available with significant fuel saving, compact size of the equipment and low pollution. As an example, high temperature air combustion technology has seen wider acceptance of the technology in many kinds of industrial furnaces, in particular, for use in steel industry and fuel reforming furnaces with demonstrated energy savings of about 30 % (on the average), about 25 % reduction in the size of the equipment (compact size), about 50 % reduction in low pollution and better quality of the product produced. Such significant energy savings
