A Review on a Promising CO2 Capture Technology: Chemical Looping Combustion (CLC)

Nesibe Dilmac, Omer Faruk Dilmac


Capture and removal of CO2 from combustion gases is of great importance issue on account of greenhouse effect and global warming. Chemical Looping Combustion (CLC), is one of the most promising candidates among efficient & clean energy technologies which fulfils fuel combustion and CO2 capture simultaneously and is also suggested as one of the cheapest CCS (carbon capture and storage) technologies. As well, it offers additional attractive advantages such as; higher energy conversion efficiency and lower, even nearly zero NOx emissions.


This study presents a brief review on recent, prime developments occurred on Chemical Looping Combustion technology and exhibits the main advantages and challenges of it.
