Innovative Internally Circulating Reactor Concept for Chemical Looping-Based CO2 Capture Processes: Hydrodynamic Investigation
An experimental hydrodynamic investigation has been carried out for a novel internally circulating chemical looping (ICCL) reactor concept proposed to reduce the technical complexities encountered in conventional chemical looping combustion (CLC) and reforming (CLR) technologies. The concept consist...
The effect of gas permeation through vertical membranes on chemical switching reforming (CSR) reactor performance
A novel membrane assisted fluidized bed reactor concept has been proposed for ultra-pure hydrogen production with integrated CO2 capture from steam methane reforming. The so called Chemical Switching Reactor (CSR) concept combines the use of an oxygen carrier for supplying heat and catalyzing the st...
Autothermal operation of a pressurized gas switching combustion reactor with a Mn-based oxygen carrier.
A Novel Swing Adsorption Reactor Cluster (SARC) for cost effective post-combustion CO2 capture: A thermodynamic assessment.
COMPOSITE A breackthrough in IGCC efficiency with CO2 capture
Modelling study of two chemical looping reforming reactor configurations: looping vs. switching
Autothermal Chemical Looping Reforming (CLR) is a promising technology for hydrogen production with integrated CO2 separation. However, the interconnected CLR reactor configuration is expected to present significant scale up challenges, especially under the pressurized conditions required for high p...
Experimental investigation on the generic effects of gas permeation through flat vertical membranes
This work reports the effects of gas extraction through flat vertical membranes on bubble dynamics in a fluidized bed. Bubble properties such as size, number, velocity and shape play a key role in the hydrodynamics and consequently heat and mass transfer characteristics of fluidized bed (membrane) r...
Detecting densified zone formation in membrane-assisted fluidized bed reactors through pressure measurements
This work reports the results of an experimental investigation on densified zone formation in a membrane fluidized bed reactor using combined pressure fluctuation and PIV (Particle Image Velocimetry) measurements. A pseudo 2D experimental setup was used, where porous plates on the back plate of colu...
