Final report chemical looping combustion inside CATO

The objective of this research was to qualify CO2-capture technologies based on denitrogenation conversion with power plant efficiency losses less than 5% through fundamental and industrial research. Subsequently, initiate dissemination activities to involve industry, both large and small companies, with the aim to prepare further technology development and demonstration.

Chemical Looping Combustion (CLC) is drawing increasing interest in its potential to capture 100% CO2 at a relatively low efficiency penalty. Numerous different set ups can be applied to perform this process. This report focuses on the results that were obtained with two of the most promising set ups so far: the packed bed reactor of Twente University and the membrane assisted reactor of TNO.
