EU project to progress calcium looping for CO2 capture at cement plants (TRL 7).
Testing post-combustion CO2 capture by calcium looping using flue gases at the ‘La Pereda’ test facility in Spain.
Testing 2nd generation chemical-looping technology on industrial auxiliary systems to produce electricity without generating CO2.
Testing facility for calcium looping at cement plant.
Oxygen is transferred to fuel through a solid oxygen-carrier; Through this process, a side effect is that CO₂ is captured as well.
High-efficiency calcium looping technology (HECLOT).
Metal oxide is used that, on contact with the feed (natural gas, coal, petcock, biomass, etc.), releases the oxygen required for combustion, producing effluents made up of stream and CO2; CO2 is easily isolated by condensing the stream.
