Residuals of Chemical Looping Combustion (CLC) - Prospects for the industry

Chemical Looping Combustion (CLC) is a new large-scale combustion technology for power generation with fossil and renewable fuels and a carbon dioxide sequestration process for carbon dioxide capture and storage. No nitrogen oxides (NO2) are hereby produced, the loss of efficiency is theoretically around 2 to 3%.

Dr. Alexander Schopf will be presenting the "Residual of Chemical Looping Combustion (CLC)- Prospects for the industry", at the Slag & AshTrade (2019) annual conference. Dr. Schopf has a CLC thesis after studying ashes from large-scale coal burning.

Alexander Schopf studied Geology and Mineralogy at the University of Stuttgart (Germany). He has a diploma in Mineralogy and received his Doctoral degree from the Faculty of Chemistry. The focus of his diploma thesis was the mineralogical analysis of fly ash obtained from the combustion of brown coal via the oxy-fuel process. The characterization of environmentally neutral, natural iron containing oxygen carriers for chemical looping combustion (CLC) power plants is the topic of his present work.
