Smoldering combustion is a flameless, self M sustaining process that occurs on the surface of a condensed i.e., solid or liquid-phase fuel, converting organic material into primarily heat, carbon dioxide, and water. Smoldering has been well documented for solid porous materials and burning charcoal in a barbeque is a familiar example. Smoldering of an organic liquid i.e., NAPL embedded within an inert porous matrix is also possible and the reaction continues in a self-sustaining manner i.e., continue in the absence of external energy input following a onetime, local ignition and would destroy the NAPL if an oxidant e.g., oxygen in air and fuel NAPL were in sufficient quantity.
