A Solar Reactor Design for Research on Calcium Oxide-Based Carbon Dioxide Capture

Reich, Leanne; Melmoth, Luke; Yue, Lindsey; Bader, Roman; Gresham, Robert; Simon, Terrence W.; Lipinski, Wojciech


An engineering design for a novel 1-kW solar-driven reactor to capture carbon dioxide via the calcium oxide-based two-step carbonation–calcination cycle has been completed. The reactor consists of a downward-facing cylindrical dual cavity. The inner cavity serves as the radiation receiver, while the outer cavity is the reaction chamber that contains a packed- or fluidized-bed of reacting particles. Several aspects have been incorporated in this reactor design, including high flexibility,...[Show more]
