Using chemical-looping with oxygen uncoupling (CLOU) for combustion six different of solid fuels
Magazine article, 2008

Chemical-looping with oxygen uncoupling (CLOU) is a novel method to burn solid fuels in gas-phase oxygen without the need for an energy intensive air separation unit. This paper presents batch laboratory fluidized bed CLOU tests where six different solid fuels are used with a Cu-based oxygen carrier. The results show that CLOU results in a factor 3 to 15 faster fuel conversions than conversional chemical-looping combustion.
