Chemical looping has great potential for reducing the energy penalty and associated costs of CO2 capture from fossil fuel-based power and chemical production while maintaining high efficiency. However, pressurized operation is a prerequisite for maximizing energy efficiency in most proposed chemical...

This study presents an experimental demonstration of pressurized chemical looping combustion (CLC) in an internally circulating reactor (ICR). The ICR concept is a novel alternative to the conventional interconnected fluidized bed CLC configuration as it eliminates all cyclones, loop seals and...

Cement production is responsible for about 8% of global CO2 emissions. Most of these emissions originate from the process itself and thus cannot be avoided via clean energy, leaving CO2 capture as the only viable solution. This study investigates the prospects of decarbonizing the cement industry...

Chemical looping combustion is a promising technology for minimizing the energy penalty of CO2 capture. To accelerate the scale-up and commercialization of this technology for pressurized operation, the internally circulating reactor (ICR) was recently proposed. ICR integrates the two reactors...
