Chemical-looping combustion of solid fuels
Book chapter, 2015
Chemical-looping combustion (CLC) of solid fuels is a novel combustion technology with the potential to drastically reduce the costs associated with CO2 capture. In this chapter, the costs and energy penalty of CO2 capture using CLC with solid fuel are compared with corresponding costs using other capture technologies. Furthermore, the operational experience in continuous units reported in the literature is explored: principal layout of reactor systems, fuels and oxygen carriers used in these systems, time of operation, and fuel-reactor temperature. The chapter also looks at the CLC process from a fuel perspective-how does the choice of fuel affect the process?
