Calcium looping CO2 capture systems use CaO as a reversible sorbent of CO2. Therefore, the evolution of the CO2 carrying capacity of CaO-materials at increasing number of carbonation-calcination needs to be determined to assess sorbent performance. Thermogravimetric analyzers (TG) are commonly used for this purpose, by simulating around a small batch of material the average cyclic conditions expected in the real system. Many variables have been reported to influence the results and we review in… CONTINUE READING
