Professor Williams has worked in the combustion of gases, liquid fuels, coal and biomass and has published about 580 research papers in these topics. He has worked on the modelling of gas fired furnaces including oxy-natural gas and flameless combustion. Work on fuel oils has particularly involved heavy fuel oils including high asphaltene fuels. Extensive research has been undertaken on the modelling of the combustion of pulverised coal, co-firing biomass up to 100% biomass. The emphasis has always been on the reduction of emissions and the efficient use of energy.
