(228a) Chemical Looping Technology - a Particle Technology Perspective
AIChE Annual Meeting
2019 AIChE Annual Meeting
Particle Technology Forum
Session in Honor of Prof. Atsushi Tsutsumi's Accomplishments (Invited Talks)
Monday, November 11, 2019 - 3:30pm to 3:50pm
Chemical looping technology is a manifestation of the interplay among all the key elements of particle science and technology including particle synthesis, reactivity and mechanical properties, flow stability and contact mechanics, gas-solid reaction engineering and particulates system engineering. This presentation will describe the fundamental and applied aspects of modern chemical looping technology that utilizes fossil and other carbonaceous feedstock. Specifically, it will discuss the reaction chemistry, ionic diffusion mechanisms, metal oxide synthesis and thermodynamics, reactor design, and system engineering along with energy conversion efficiency and economics of the Coal-Direct Chemical Looping Process and Syngas Chemical Looping Process being developed at Ohio State University at a pilot level. Further, CO2 emission control using the chemical looping technology will be illustrated and compared with other CO2 capture methods. Potential for selective oxidation in the production of fuels and chemicals, as well as solar based chemical looping technology, will also be discussed.
