The introduction of solid catalysts into a traditionally non-catalytic free-radical process such as combustion occurred in recent years under the influence of environmental pressures. The major applications of catalytic combustion are two-fold: at low temperatures to eliminate volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and at high temperatures (>1000degreesC) to reduce NOx emission from gas turbines, jet motors, etc. It is the high temperature application that is reviewed here. Some recent depolopments in high-temperature catalytic combustion are trend setters in catalysis and hence of particular interest. For instance, novel materials are being developed for catalytic applications above 1000degreesC for sustained operation longer than one year. Where material/catalyst developments are still inadequate, systems engineering is coming to the rescue by developing multiple-monolith catalyst systems and the so-called hybrid (catalytic + thermal) reactors.
