Chemical Looping Combustion - power generation and H2 production with CO2 capture

Jason Cleeton (Energy)

 

Chemical Looping Combustion is an emerging technology whereby fossil fuels are burnt using the oxygen contained within a metal oxide. The combustion in oxygen rather than air enables easy capture of CO2 from the flue gas, whilst the subsequent re-oxidation of the metal oxide in air is highly exothermic, and provides the heat to raise steam for power generation. This presentation looks at how the process may be further adapted for the production of high-purity H2, and how some of the challenges facing the technology may be addressed.
