FP6 project BURNERCAT

Abstract    
     Due to the growing concern of the European Union regarding Nox emissions, greenhouse gas emissions (CO2) and energy savings, household appliance manufacturers must develop technologies able to comply with existing and forthcoming regulations that will be more and more stringent. For domestic boilers, the burner is the critical component for such progress. However, optimisation of the design of traditional burners has reached its limits in this field and induces technology suppliers of the sector to embark on the catalytic combustion track. The BURNERCAT project aims to provide the SME proposers of the partnership a cost-effective solution to manufacture efficient and reliable catalytic burners. A successful implementation of this innovative technology requires the necessary RandD investments. The main deliverable of the BURNERCAT project will be a catalytic burner for a domestic boiler application (average heat input 10 Kw) with the following specifications:- ultra-low Nox emissions).
