Abstract

Modeling of methane combustion in several types of catalyst packages composed of 2 or 3 beds of granulated catalysts with different chemical compositions, shapes and sizes of pellets has been performed. It has been shown that the high efficiency of methane combustion (>99.97%) and low emission of HC < 10 ppm can be achieved for all types of catalyst packages at variation of the inlet temperature. Experimental runs in a model reactor (1.3 kg catalyst) have demonstrated very good correlation with the results of the modeling.
