Methane combustion in the presence of various types of perovskites supported on ceramic foams has been studied with respect to the CO and NOx formation. The effect of the catalyst composition and of the air-to-methane ratio on the CO and NOx concentration has been evaluated for different burner capacities.

Keywords: Catalytic combustion; Ceramic foam; Perovskites.
