Commercialization of the Iron Base Coal Direct Chemical Looping Process for Power Production with in situ Carbon Dioxide Capture

Performer: Babcock & Wilcox Power Generation Group

Project No: FE0009761

Program Background and Project Benefits

This project focuses on development of an iron-based coal-direct chemical looping process (CDCL). The CDCL reactor design leverages high oxygen carrier conversion rates and improved solids separation, reducing equipment size and complexity and driving down capital and operating costs relative to conventional systems. Specifically, this project involves bench-scale testing and modeling to address solids handling, carrier capacity, and techno-economic analysis to provide a basis for small pilot-scale testing.
