Answer to Question #43312 in Other Chemistry for Zeph

Question #43312
List other chemical reactions that can result in heating being produced to such an extent that ignition may occur
Expert's answer
If the rate of heatproduction during the reaction is greater than the rate of heat loss to the
environment, self ignition can occur. An exothermal reaction in a dust pile is an example of that.
Another example is organicmaterial decomposition on the landfills. The main reaction of that process is:
Organic material + H2O (bacteria) → biodegraded organic matter + CH+ CO2 + other gases
In the right conditions(enough CH4 concentration and heat) the self ignition may occur.
