Background and activities

PhD Candidate in Energy and Process Engineering at NTNU (January 2017 to present)

Research Supervisor: Dr. Shahriar Amini

Research Project: “A pressurized Internally Circulating Reactor (ICR) for cost-effective power production with integrated CO2 capture”

  • The project aimed to demonstrate the technical and economic attractiveness of a pressurized Internally Circulating Reactor (ICR) through dedicated experimental studies.
  • The design of the ICR concept is based on the principle of chemical looping, which forms the basis for numerous solutions for highly efficient energy conversion with integrated CO2 capture.
  • The ICR concept is a promising novel reactor configuration that have the potential to simplify the design, accelerate the commercialization, reduce the process cost, and pressurized the operation of chemical looping processes.
  • The project is a collaboration between NTNU and SINTEF Materials and Chemistry, and funded under the Research Council of Norway’s CLIMIT program.
