AbstractPromising impregnated oxygen carriers, based on copper and iron, have been previously developed for CLC with gaseous fuels (CH4, syngas, LHC). Recently, because of its low cost and environmental compatibility, Mn-based oxygen carriers are now being considered as an attractive option for chemical-looping combustion (CLC) applications. In this work, a screening of different commercial supports in fluidizable particle size for impregnated Mn-based materials has been carried out. Different oxygen carriers have been prepared by incipient impregnation on ZrO2, and CaAl2O4, and evaluated with respect to their mechanical resistance, fuel gas reactivity and fluidization properties such as agglomeration and attrition rate. In a first step, particles showing high enough crushing strength values were selected for the reactivity investigation. The redox reactivity was evaluated through TGA experiments at suitable temperatures for the CLC process (i.e. 850-950 °C) using H2, CO and CH4. Multi cycle redox analysis and full physical and chemical characterization was also performed. In a second step, materials with high enough reactivity were prepared for fluidized bed evaluation. A batch fluidized bed installation with continuous gaseous fuel feed was used to analyze the product gas distribution during reduction and oxidation reactions at different operation temperatures, and agglomeration and attrition behavior of the selected materials. Results showed that an oxygen carrier impregnated using ZrO2 as support, had high enough reactivity and low attrition rate. Therefore, this material can be selected as a candidate for the development of CLC with syngas with promising results.
