was a 3.5 years lasting project to investigate CFB technologies towards making them more flexible and environmental friendly under high ramp-up rates and the adoption of low rank fuels co-combustion with difficult to combust biogenic fuels as a retrofitting option in fluidized bed power plants. Alongside the technical issues that needed to be overcome, their environmental and economic performance were also investigated.
is a 3-year lasting research project funded by the ACT Consortium. The aim of this project is to prepare for pre-commercial demonstration of Chemical Looping Combustion (CLC) for CO2 capture from waste-to-energy (WtE). CLC is an innovative, highly efficient combustion process for generation of power and heat providing a concentrated stream of CO2. The potential impact of enabling CLC for WtE is large, especially in urban areas where WtE plants are a majof source of CO2. A main advantage of the CLC concept ist the separation of the heat production from the release of problematic substances. This allows for higher steam temperatures and electrical efficiency, even for more low-quality fuels, such as waste.
