Project Description

This project will develop a systematic approach to quantify the relationships among the compositional, structural, and reactive properties of the mixed-metal oxide based Oxygen Carriers. This will lead to systematic and quantitative criteria for Oxygen Carrier development. Using these criteria, a combination of muti-scale modeling, metaheuristic optimization, and experiments will be used to design optimized Oxygen Carriers for coal Chemical Looping Combustion.

Project Benefits

This project will develop rationally designed mixed-metal oxides for chemical looping combustion of coal via computational experimental studies. These developments will allow researchers to accurately predict the relationship between mixed-oxide compositions and their phase properties for oxygen carrier optimization. Overall, improvements to this advanced combustion technology will promote the development of advanced power plant designs for increased efficiency, operational flexibility, and lower capital and operating costs.
