CPFD Modeling of a Novel Internally Circulating Bubbling Fluidized Bed for Chemical Looping Combustion
This thesis by Christopher McIntyre from the University of Ottawa explores the use of CPFD modeling related to pressurized chemical looping combustion.
Virtual Reactor simulations were used to evaluate the re-design and reconfiguration of a dual-fluidized bed (DFB) gasification system into a recirculating pyrolysis reactor, by researchers at NREL, UCSD, and West Biofuels, LLC.
CO2 Capture Using Chemical Looping Combustion from a Biomass-Derived Syngas Feedstock: Simulation of a Riser–Downer Scaled-up Unit
This simulation study the University of Western Ontario demonstrates the scalability of chemical looping combustion (CLC) to achieve efficient capture of biomass-derived CO2.
Modeling and Process Features of Plug Flow Reactor with Internal Recirculation for Biomass Pyrolysis
Virtual Reactor simulation of a biomass pyrolysis reactor, by Kokourine and Adham at Hatch, verifies that plug-flow with internal-recirculation (PFIR) can be achieved under reasonable operating conditions.
Incorporating Oxygen Uncoupling Kinetics into Computational Fluid Dynamic Simulations of a Chemical Looping System
In this study by the University of Utah, Barracuda simulations for a chemical looping with oxygen uncoupling system compared well with literature and data.
In this paper, Clark, Snider, and Spenik compare cold-flow experimental results with Barracuda simulation for a full-loop CFB experimental carbon capture unit constructed at the US DOE National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL).
