The report gives results of an experimental study to: (1) define operating conditions for catalytic combustors that give low levels of NOx emissions for fuelbound nitrogen compounds, and (2) quantitatively determine the fate of fuel nitrogen during catalytic combustion. Tests were conducted with platinum and nickel oxide catalysts over a range of test conditions, using ammonia and methylamine as model fuel nitrogen compounds. Fuel NOx emissions were found to be strongly dependent on catalyst type; however, varying mass throughput, bed temperature, fuel, and fuel nitrogen type had virtually no effect on fuel NOx. The dominant nitrogenous products resulting from the catalytic combustion of a nitrogen-containing fuel were NO, N2, NH3, and HCN.
