The University of Utah has developed a 10 kWth bench scale dual fluidized bed chemical looping combustion system. The goal of the study presented here was to assess system performance and compare conventional chemical looping combustion, known as indirect gasification-CLC or iG-CLC, with CLOU chemical looping. In this study two different fuels, coal and coal char, were processed and the degree of fuel conversion, CO2 capture efficiency and CO2 purity were evaluated. Performance of the unit itself is also evaluated by changing variables such as temperature, flow rate, bed inventory, and circulation rate to determine optimal performance.
