Project general information

Project: Demonstration of Gas Switching Technology for Accelerated Scale-up of Pressurized Chemical Looping Applications - GaSTech
Finaciar support: Romanian National Authority for Scientific Research, CNCS - UEFISCDI; European Commission through ERA-NET ACT programme
Project code: ERA-NET ACT
Contract number: 91/2017
Period: 2017 - 2020


        The GaSTech project will accelerate the development of gas switching technologies by developing a business case for further technology scale-up. The business case will have two main components: 1) lab-scale demonstration (TRL 4) of gas switching reactor concepts and 2) large-scale technology implementation studies to evaluate the techno-economic feasibility of process concepts incorporating gas switching reactors.

        The proposed project has three main objectives: (i) Demonstrate autothermal pressurized operation of gas switching reforming (GSR), water splitting (GSWS) and oxygen production (GSOP) in an existing lab-scale reactor; (ii) Demonstrate autothermal operation of a lab-scale cluster of pressurized gas switching combustion (GSC) reactors; (iii) Conduct techno-economic assessments for promising CO2 capture process configurations utilizing the gas switching technologies mentioned above
