This work provides new data about catalytic combustion at conditions relevant for gas turbines, furnishing simple rate equations and evidences of the feasibility of multi-fuel catalytic combustion. Due to the application of conditions similar to those of a gas turbine burner, our results are more easily extendable to industrial combustor.
