Instituto de Carboquímica (ICB). The “Combustion and Gasification” research group at ICB is composed by about 20 scientific researchers including staff, students and technicians. The group has a long expertise in gas-solid reactions, reaction kinetics, modelling applied to fluidized bed combustion and gasification processes as well as on Chemical Looping Combustion (CLC) process. Since 2000 the Department is involved in the particle development, selection and testing of oxygen carriers for CLC, kinetic studies and reactor optimization for this process. They have participate in several EU projects related with CLC: GRACE(FP6), CCCC (RFCS), CLC GASPOWER(FP6), CACHET (FP6), UNIQUE(FP7), ACCLAIM(RFCS), and other Spanish research projects. CSIC has worked in the CLC Process to transfer the concept from laboratory to prototype scale carrying out a demonstration of the technology.
