This paper presents gas emissions from turbulent chemical flow inside a model combustor, for different blending ratios of hydrogenmethane composite fuels. Gas emissions such as CO and O2 from the combustion reaction were obtained using a gas analyzer. NOx emissions were measured with a NOx analyzer. The previously obtained flame temperature distributions were also presented. As the amount of hydrogen in the mixture increases, more hydrogen is involved in the combustion reaction, and more heat is released, and the higher temperature levels are resulted. The results have shown that the combustion efficiency increases and CO emission decreases when the hydrogen content is increased in blending fuel. It is also shown that the hydrogenmethane blending fuels are efficiently used without any important modification in the natural gas burner. Copyright (c) 2011 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
