Advanced Sorbents for CCS via Controlled Sintering

Calcium looping shows significant promise for CO2 capture. The process can lead to an energy penalty as low as 6 – 8 % including the compression of the lean CO2 stream, compared to 9.5 – 12.5 % for amine-based post-combustion capture.

To implement this technology on an industrial scale, a large quantity of CaO-based sorbent will be required, therefore the sorbent must be capable of being regenerated and reused.
