Abstract: a b s t r a c tChemical-looping combustion (CLC) is a novel technology that can be used to meet growing demands on energy production without CO 2 emissions. The CLC process includes two reactors, an air and a fuel reactor. Between these two reactors oxygen is transported by an oxygen carrier, which most often is a metal oxide. This arrangement prevents mixing of N 2 from the air with CO 2 from the combustion giving combustion gases that consist almost entirely of CO 2 and H 2 O. The technique reduces the ener…
