IRPC Operations: BrightLoop Chemical Looping for producing clean energy

By Sumedha Sharma, Technical Editor, Hydrocarbon Processing

In Session 41 of IRPC Operations 2021, Tom Flynn, Technical Consultant, Babcock and Wilcox, talked about BrightLoopTM chemical looping as a platform technology employable to produce steam, hydrogen, or syngas from a variety of feed such as coal, natural gas, biomass, and biogas. The key feature and of  this technology is the inherent separation of CO2 by design, in addition to high selectivity, scalability, and flexibility of application and operation.  

The technology has been tested successfully for continuous operation and controlled shutdown at a 250 kW stage and the test results have been used to design a 10 MW plant establishing the estimates for commercial deployment. Tom summarized the various advantages of chemical looping and concluded to state that the technology must be continued to be developed to exploit its tremendous potential in producing clean energy.
