Abstract

The calcium looping process has become a promising technology for reducing carbon dioxide emissions because of its lower energy consumption compared with other methods. A three-dimensional multifluid model based on the kinetic theory was employed to study the movement of granules in the calciner. The results demonstrated that an increase in the rotation speed and inclination angle of the calciner led to a decrease in the residence time of the particles. Simultaneously, the probability of the particles being heated was reduced. Insufficiently calcined particles reduce the carbon capture capacity in the next cycle; therefore, suitable operating conditions and mechanism designs are very important.
