Abstract

The advantages and disadvantages of the catalysts so far employed or proposed for the low temperature catalytic combustion of hydrocarbons, in both static and mobile energy production devices, are discussed. Furthermore, a La0.9Ce0.1CoO3±δ perovskite has been prepared by a recently proposed new flame-hydrolysis (FH) method. This proved a high surface area, thermally highly resistant catalyst. The partial substitution of Ce for La in such a cobaltite led to a relatively low suprafacial activity, but to a high bulk oxygen mobility, leading to high intrafacial activity for the catalytic flameless combustion of methane. The best operating conditions have been also found, for supporting the so prepared active phase, by dip-coating of a cordieritic honeycomb support, after deposition of an alumina primer. A very active and durable catalyst was so obtained, useful for practical application in the environmentally friendly low temperature combustion of methane.
