Chemical Looping Combustion
To provide entirely new combustion technology
- with no contact between fuel and combustion air - featuring the inherent separation of CO2
and avoidance of nitrogen oxide formation.
This chemical-looping-combustion technology (CLC) will be developed for gaseous and
solid fuels and operated at atmospheric and pressurized conditions. Substantial R&D
will be directed towards materials and conceptual CLC-processes. In pursuing
prospective technology routes stable reactive materials at acceptable cost and
reactor concepts must be developed and characterized. Especially concepts that apply
CFB reactors in which the oxygen carrier is a powder will be addressed. Owing to fine
particles that are prone to damage turbine blades, optional reactor concepts will be
suggested in order to overcome this attrition problem. Innovative solutions are likely
to have fixed bed materials, using a honeycomb structure or extruded pellets. A strategy
for selecting low cost raw materials will be established, and an optimized conceptual
process design will established.
