Catalytic combustion of lean methane–air mixtures was studied on supported iron oxide and platinum monolith catalysts. Flameless catalytic combustion was investigated in the temperature range 600–900°C, GHSV up to 10 000 h−1, and methane concentration in initial gas mixture 1–9 vol%. It was shown that under certain process conditions complete combustion of methane at ∼4.5 vol% inlet methane concentration occurs.
