Abstract Reticulated ceramics (three-dimensional "web-like" porous ceramics) offer an ideal structure for combustion of gas-air mixtures. Combustion in these porous media have shown results of increased flame speeds, high volumetric release rates, and low NOx emissions. These unique materials have demonstrated high turndown ratios and stable combustion with extremely lean mixtures. The theory of combustion in these cost effective, high temperature materials will be briefly discussed. The use of reticulated ceramics as infrared burners, compact volumetric burners, and flow through heat curtains will be reviewed. Applications in waste incineration will also be presented.
