CPFD Software announced that it has entered into a software licensing agreement with Aurora Hydrogen, who are developing a clean hydrogen production technology that utilizes efficient microwave energy without generating any CO2 emissions or consuming water.
CPFD Software Partners with Microsoft, Encina, and NVIDIA to Aid Development of Novel Plastic Recycling Technologies
CPFD Software Partners with Microsoft, Encina, and NVIDIA to Aid Development of Novel Plastic Recycling Technologies and to advance the urgent and vital work of designing next-generation recycling facilities.
NVIDIA will be hosting an hour long webinar on how Barracuda Virtual Reactor leverages NVIDIA technology as well as cloud computing to accelerate the development of plastics recycling technologies.
CPFD Software and Anellotech, Inc. (Pearl River, NY) announce their software licensing agreement. Anellotech aims to use CPFD’s Barracuda Virtual Reactor® as part of the design process for a commercial-scale fluidized bed reactor for its cutting-edge Plas-TCat™ process.
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).
