SOlar Calcium-looping integRAtion for Thermo-Chemical  Energy Storage
ID: 727348
Start date: 2018-01-01, End date: 2020-12-31
Lime (CaO) has been long proposed as an energy intensive material for the storage of energy in a chemical form by means of carbonation/calcination cycles. This Calcium-looping process (CaL) is the basis of a proven pilot-scale technology for CO2 capture, which is accomplished...
