In the present work a Chemical-Looping Combustion process for solid fuels is simulated on the 100 MWth scale. The coal is gasified inside the fuel reactor by recirculated CO2 and H2O. A carbon stripper downstream of the fuel reactor is used to reduce the carryover of char from the fuel to the air reactor. The influence of the carbon stripper on the CO2 capture rate is investigated. The results demonstrate the significance of the carbon stripper in this process.
