Calcium Carbonate Looping (CCL) is a promising long-term technology for low-cost post combustion CO2 capture for fossil fuels using limestone based solid sorbents. It combines the advantages of a small efficiency penalty of 5 to 7 % points and a low CO2 capture cost compared to competing technologies currently under development. First tests performed on the 1 MWth scale have confirmed the feasibility of the technology. Construction of a pilot plant in the order of 20 MWth is a logical next step in the development of this technology. One major goal of the proposed project is to perform long-term tests with different fuels in an upgraded 1 MWth pilot plant, aiming mainly at optimization of operating conditions and operational reliability. The successful operation of the upgraded pilot will provide the important validation step between the 1 MWth scale and a future 20 MWth scale pilot plant. Process and CFD models will be developed and comprehensively validated against experimatal data from 1 MWth testing. These models will be applied to support the engineering for a 20 MWth scale pilot plant. The project will provide a techno-economic as well as an environmental assessment of this high-potential technology for CO2 capture from power plants as well cement and steel production plants, and provide the fundamental expertise needed for the scale-up and further technology development and integration.

LEILAC, Low Emissions Intensity Lime And Cement, will successfully pilot a breakthrough technology that will enable both Europes cement and lime industries to reduce their emissions dramatically while retaining, or even increasing, international competitiveness. LEILAC will develop, build and operate a 240 tonne per day pilot plant demonstrating Direct Separation calcining technology which will capture over 95% of the process CO2 emissions (which is 60 % of total CO2 emissions) from both industries without significant energy or capital penalty. Direct Separation technology uses indirect heating in which the process CO2 and furnace combustion gases do not mix, resulting in the simple capture of high quality CO2. This innovation requires minimal changes to the conventional processes for cement, replacing the calciner in the Preheater-Calciner Tower. For lime there is no product contamination from the combustion gas. The technology can be used with alternative fuels and other capture technologies to achieve negative CO2 emissions. The project will also enable research into novel building materials with a reduced CO2 footprint, as well the upgrade of low value limestone fines and dust to high value lime applications. The high potential of the project is complemented by high deliverability. The requested grant will secure 8.8m of in-kind funding and support from the LEILAC consortium members, which include world leading engineering, cement, lime and R&D organisations. To accelerate further development, LEILAC will deliver a techno-economic roadmap, and comprehensive knowledge sharing activities including a visitor centre at the pilot site near Brussels. In order to reach the required 80% emissions reductions by 2050, CCS will need to be applied to 85% of European clinker production, and LEILAC is uniquely placed to allow Europe to achieve these targets in a timely, effective and efficient manner.
