Professor Behdad Moghtaderi

Attracting more than $48 million in research funding in the past 12 years and with more than 220 publications, the world-renowned chemical engineer has helped solve some of the biggest issues in improving energy efficiency and developing low emissions coal and renewable energy technologies.

"Reducing global greenhouse gas emissions has always been the driver of my research – the future of our planet depends on it," Professor Moghtaderi said.

"These innovations are not only important economically for industry, but to society's overall quality of life, health and environment," he said.

Professor Moghtaderi and his 30-strong research team, based at the University of Newcastle's world-class interdisciplinary research facility Newcastle Institute for Energy and Resources (NIER), are currently working on delivering safe, new methods of managing ventilation air methane (VAM) generated by underground coal mines.

The release of fugitive methane emissions is a by-product of underground coal mining and accounts for 64 per cent of all greenhouse gas emissions from the coal mining sector.

Announced in 2014, Professor Moghtaderi will lead two research projects that will address some of the major technical barriers to the full scale commercial deployment of VAM emissions abatement technologies, including the critical challenge of safe connection to the ventilation systems of underground mines.

The two projects received a total $30 million in funding from the Australian Government's Department of Industry and ACA Low Emissions Technologies Ltd.

Comparing his technologies to 'insurance' for climate change, Professor Moghtaderi said the VAM technology can potentially reduce fugitive methane emissions from underground coal mine operations by up to 90 per cent, reducing Australia's total national greenhouse gas inventory by about three percent and save industry millions.

"On an Australia-wide scale, removing VAM emissions from underground coal mining operations would be the equivalent to removing 2.8 million cars from our roads."

Once developed, the project outcomes will be equally applicable in other countries with underground coal mines.

"People take out home and car insurance to protect their assets and themselves from unknown events in the future. A similar rationale can be applied to energy technologies.

"We might not fully understand the impacts of climate changes, but are we comfortable with doing nothing and hoping that everything will be OK?"

This commitment has also seen Professor Moghtaderi and co-inventor Dr Elham Doroodchi and their teams to work with industry and develop GRANEX, an emission-free engine that turns heat from low-grade sources such as geothermal and industrial waste heat into electricity.

The research gained popular attention when GRANEX featured on the ABC TV's The New Inventors in 2011.

"I always enter my first lecture with a hot cup of coffee, which I place under a scaled model of a sterling engine connected to a propeller. The heat from my coffee powers the propeller blades of the model. It is a simple example of how waste heat can be used. I have been using that demonstration for ten years now and will never grow tired of seeing how excited it makes my students."

The technology delivers higher thermal efficiencies than conventional power plants, improving cycle efficiency and increasing the net electrical output from a given heat source by around 40 per cent.

A solar thermal combined power and heat plant using GRANEX is expected to be fully operational by March 2014 at the Wallsend public pool.

"We recently installed GRANEX technology to heat a local swimming pool. This is now a recreational resource for the community that can be used all year round, instead of just the warmer months."

"This is just one example of the commercial applications for GRANEX. It has significant potential international market value and could generate billions of dollars."

The revolutionary device is capable of using heat sources that might not otherwise be viably recycled, such as the flue gas from a coal-fired power station, exhaust from a diesel engine or heat from a geothermal source.

GRANEX was created after Granite Power Pty Ltd approached the University' commercial arm, Newcastle Innovation, looking for help to solve a problem they were having regarding developing commercially attractive geothermal energy technology.

Professor Moghtaderi said the ease with which industry could approach and work with global leaders had helped cement the University of Newcastle's reputation as being at the international forefront of research into clean and sustainable energy sources.

"The spirit of research here at the University of Newcastle is that we have a strong solutions-focused approach and want to see this research applied to the real world – we aim to be pragmatic and practical," said Professor Moghtaderi.

"With NIER, a world-class interdisciplinary research facility both here on campus, Newcastle truly is Australia's hub in energy research."

Leading change

Our researchers are on a mission to reduce the world's greenhouse gas emissions

Professor Behdad Moghtaderi is on a mission to solve global energy challenges through world-leading research to develop low emissions coal technologies, renewable energy technologies and engineering solutions to improve energy efficiency in industry.

"I am driven by a desire to develop technologies that will help reduce greenhouse emissions. The future of our planet relies on it," says Professor Behdad Moghtaderi.

It is this passion that has equipped the chemical engineer to take a leading role in the University of Newcastle's Centre for Energy, a national leader in the research field of new-generation clean and renewable energy production. The Centre is a key component of the Newcastle Institute for Energy and Resources (NIER), a world-class interdisciplinary research facility on the University campus.

A consultant to government and industry, Professor Moghtaderi is a global thought leader, anticipating priorities for change and development in the energy sector. As a result, he has attracted more than $32 million in research funding in the past 12 years.

"We have recognised the research opportunities, and we are delivering results that are shaping government and industry agendas."

It is this influence and expertise that is generating sustainability outcomes on a global scale. His latest work involving Ventilation Air Methane, or VAM, may hold the key to unlocking one of the underground coal mining industries greatest environmental challenges. With the potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from underground coal mining operations by as much as 90 per cent, Professor Moghtaderi's VAM technology could lead to emissions reductions equivalent to the removal of 2.8 million cars from Australian roads.

Professor Moghtaderi gained popular attention when his GRANEX power platform featured on the ABC TV's The New Inventors in 2011. GRANEX, developed in conjunction with Granite Power Pty Ltd, is an emission-free engine that turns heat from low-grade sources into electricity.

It is revolutionary because it is capable of using heat sources that might not otherwise be viably recycled, such as the flue gas from a coal-fired power station, exhaust from a diesel engine or heat from a geothermal source.

Commercialised examples of his technologies are abundant and can be found throughout the world in power stations, the mining and minerals processing industry and community assets such as swimming pools.   

Professor Moghtaderi compares his technologies to 'insurance' for climate change.

"People take out home and car insurance to protect their assets and themselves from unknown events in the future. A similar rationale can be applied to the technologies that fascinate me. We might not fully understand the impacts of climate change but are we comfortable with doing nothing and hoping that everything will be OK?"

Professor Moghtaderi firmly believes the University is at the international forefront of research into clean and sustainable energy sources.

"The University's engineering area has always been a leader and now, with our Centre for Energy and the Newcastle Institute for Energy and Resources on campus, Newcastle really is Australia's hub in energy research."

As a lecturer at the University of Newcastle, Professor Moghtaderi is taking steps to ensure this tradition continues by inspiring and cultivating the next generation of researchers.

"I always enter my first lecture with a hot coffee, which I place under a model of an engine and propeller. The heat from my coffee powers the propeller blades of the model. It's an example of the GRANEX technology. I have been using that demonstration for ten years now and will never grow tired of seeing how excited it makes my students."

With such enthusiasm for learning, it is easy to see how Professor Moghtaderi has received several teaching awards.

Looking to the future, Professor Moghtaderi hopes to continue his exploration of community applications of his technology.

"We recently installed GRANEX technology to heat a local swimming pool. This generated great outcomes for the community as it is now a recreational resource that can be used all year round, instead of just the warmer months."

We combine combustion experiments and density functional theory (DFT) calculations to investigate the formation of chlorobenzenes from oxidative thermal decomposition of 1,3-dichloropropene. Mono- to hexa-chlorobenzenes are observed between 800 and 1150. K, and the extent of chlorination was proportional to the combustion temperature. Higher chlorinated congeners of chlorobenzene (tetra-, penta-, hexa-chlorobenzene) are only observed in trace amounts between 950 and 1050. K. DFT calculations indicate that cyclisation of chlorinated hexatrienes proceeds via open-shell radical pathways. These species represent key components in the formation mechanism of chlorinated polyaromatic hydrocarbons. Results presented herein should provide better understanding of the evolution of soot from combustion/pyrolysis of short chlorinated alkenes.

Abstract Methanol economy is considered as an alternative to hydrogen economy due to the better handling and storage characteristics of methanol fuel than liquid hydrogen. This paper is concerned about a comprehensive equilibrium thermodynamic analysis carried out on methanol production via an innovative Chemical Looping Carbon Arrestor/Reforming process being developed at the University of Newcastle in order to reduce both energy consumption and carbon emissions. The detailed simulation revealed thermodynamic limitations within the Chemical Looping Carbon Reforming process however on the other hand it also confirmed that the new concept is a low energy requirement and low emission option compared to other methanol production technologies. Specifically, the mass and energy balance study showed that the Chemical Looping Carbon Reforming process typically consumes approximately 0.76-0.77 mole methane, 0.25-0.27 mole carbon dioxide, 0.49-0.50 mole water, and 0.51 mole iron oxide (in a chemical looping manner) per mole of methanol production. Moreover, the energy efficiency of Chemical Looping Carbon Reforming process was found to be ~64-70% and its emission profile was found as low as 0.14 mole carbon dioxide per mole of methanol, which is about 82-88% less than the conventional methanol production process and well below the emission levels of other emerging methanol production technologies.

In a chemical looping combustor (CLC) system, the solid circulation rate (SCR) is a key parameter that determines the design, operating conditions and the overall efficiency of the system. In the present work, the gas-solid flow of a CLC cold flow model (10kWth) has been simulated by the computational fluid dynamics-discrete element method (CFD-DEM). The results showed that the SCR at different locations of the system fluctuates with time with different amplitude, and the variation of SCR is periodically stable. The turbulent gas-solid flow regime in the air reactor was found to be the main mechanism driving the fluctuation of SCR and determined the fluctuation frequency and amplitude. The SCR increased with the flow rates of air/fuel reactors and loop seals, and the total solid inventory. Changes in operating conditions directly induced the change in the mass of solids that were entrained into the riser from the air reactor and how fast the solids were transported therein. A correlation was subsequently proposed to describe the SCR as a function of solid hold-up and gas flow velocity in the riser. The particle residence time decreased in a power law as the SCR increased. Reasonable agreements were obtained between simulations and experiments in terms of solid distribution, gas-solid flow patterns, pressure drop profiles and SCR.

Three Australian sub-bituminous coals were treated with three different ionic liquids (ILs) at a temperature of 100 °C. The thermal behaviour of these treated coals were compared against raw coals via pyrolysis experiments in a Thermogravimetric Analyser. Morphological comparisons were also made via Scanning Electron Microscopy. Among the studied ILs, 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium chloride [Bmim][Cl] was found to perform the most consistently in being able to alter the thermal and morphological properties of most of the coals used. It is posited that this may be due to the large difference in charge density between the delocalised charge of the large bmim cation and the chloride anion which allows this IL to disrupt the cross linked network of coal. It was also found that the interactions of the ionic liquids are coal specific, for instance none of the ionic liquids were able to change the thermal properties of coal A. Moreover, the results indicated that among the studied coals, coal R showed the highest mass loss during pyrolysis in TGA and coal C showed the highest amount of swelling and fragmentation in SEM images. The results displayed in this study indicate that the potential for ionic liquids to be used as pre-treatments in coal liquefaction is promising. Crown

The larger reactor volume, additional oxygen polishing unit, and carbon stripper for the separation of oxygen carriers and ash in the chemical looping combustion (CLC) and/or chemical looping oxygen uncoupling (CLOU) processes for solid fuels are anticipated not only to incur operational complexity but also to increase the capital and operating costs. As an alternative, this paper proposes a novel hybrid process, called "Chemical Looping Oxy Combustor (CLOC)". This novel process provides an integration of chemical looping air separation (CLAS) with fluidized bed oxy-fuel combustion and is expected to eliminate the need for an additional oxygen polishing unit and carbon stripper. It can be retrofitted to any existing coal circulating fluidized bed (CFB) at low cost. The other advantages of CLOC includes less solid handling issues, flexibility in handling low-grade coal with high moisture, no/less contamination of oxygen carriers, no/less slip of CO2/SOx in an air reactor, low energy penalty, etc. Also, in the CLOC process, coal combustion will occur in a separate fluidized bed combustor with relatively faster kinetics, because of the availability of high oxygen concentration (i.e., ~25-28 vol-"%), which eliminates the need for a larger fuel reactor volume. In the current paper, thermodynamic simulations of CLOC process using Cu-, Mn-, and Co-based metal oxide oxygen carriers were performed. Their performances were also compared against the conventional air-firing and oxy-firing technologies, e.g., oxy-fuel combustion integrated with cryogenic air separation unit (CASU) and CLOU. It was identified that the CLOC process needs external heat for reduction reactor provided by either direct or indirect methane combustion. Moreover, a maximum plant thermal efficiency was achieved for CLOC using Cu-based oxygen carrier. The energy penalty of the CLOC process, compared with the air-firing base case, was found to be ~2%-3%, which is ~4-5 times smaller than those of the CASU cases and only half of that of the CLOU process, indicating that CLOC offers a promising option for the combustion of solid fuels.

Fe2O3/Al2O3 is found to be a suitable oxygen carrier candidate for the chemical looping combustion with ultralow methane concentration in a previous study by our team. In order to facilitate the fundamental reactor design and understand the energy consumption, the reduction kinetics mechanism of Fe2O3 (hematite) with 0.5 vol % CH4 was determined and the kinetic parameters were estimated based on the thermogravimetric analysis. Two oxygen carriers (i.e., Fe25Al and Fe45Al) were prepared and used in the TGA experiment. It was observed that the reduction of Fe2O3 was a two-steps process. Initially, Fe2O3 is transformed into Fe3O4 (magnetite) at a fast reaction rate and followed by a slow step corresponding to the reduction from Fe3O4 to FeAl2O4. A topochemical approach associated with Hancock and Sharp's method was therefore applied to determine the most suitable kinetic model for the reduction process. It was found that the initial fast step can be described by the Avrami-Erofe'ev phase change model, the A2 model for low conversion, and the A3 model for high conversion, whereas the reaction for the second step was in diffusion control. It also can be concluded that within the Fe2O3 content of 25-45 wt %, there is no difference on the reduction kinetic mechanism and similar activation energy was obtained, which can be comparable with the findings in the literature.

The success of many industrial processes largely depends on the structural characteristics of aggregates. In intensive aerobic digestion process for wastewater treatment applications, the structural characteristics namely aggregate shape, size and therefore the aggregate surface area strongly influence the transfer of dissolved oxygen from the aeration process to aggregates of harmful contaminants/microorganisms. The aim of this study was to apply Discrete Element Modelling (DEM) techniques to the aggregation of suspended particles (microorganisms) to quantify the available surface area for convection and diffusion as a function of particles number concentration and surface charge. The simulation inputs included particle and fluid characteristics such as particle size and density, solid concentration, suspension pH and ionic strength. A post processing method based on the Go-chess concept was developed to quantify the surface area of aggregate structure. The simulation results showed that whilst an increase in connection points increases the total surface area of the aggregate, this does not necessarily translate into an increase in the surface area available for oxygen transfer as combinations of open and close pores are formed. Aggregate surface area was directly determined by aggregate structural characteristics, and increased rapidly when the coordination number was below 3.5 and the fractal dimension was less than 1.5. A correlation for prediction of aggregate external surface area was also proposed as a function of aggregate structural characteristics in terms of fractal dimension and coordination number.

An experimental study was conducted to identify the most suitable alumina-supported iron-based oxygen carrier for the abatement of ultralow concentration methane using a chemical looping approach. This was done by evaluating the performance characteristics such as reactivity, cyclic stability, and gas conversion. The experiments were carried out in a thermogravimetric analyzer and a fixed bed reactor setup under the desired conditions. Thermodynamics analysis was carried out using the commercially available software ASPENPLUS. The analysis suggested that the favorable iron-based oxygen carriers were those with the weight content of Fe2O3 less than 50 wt %. Three Fe2O3/Al2O3 samples were therefore prepared with the metal oxide contents in the range of 10-45 wt %, i.e., Fe10Al, Fe25Al, and Fe45Al. The thermogravimetric analysis experimental results showed that the reduction reactivity and stability were improved with the addition of support material compared with unsupported Fe2O3. Moreover, the reduction reactivity varied with the solid conversion range and the weight content of the parent material. For full reduction of Fe2O3 to Fe3O4, the sample Fe10Al showed the highest reduction reactivity. However, in terms of the rate of oxygen transport (which considers the combined effects of the oxygen transfer capacity and reactivity), the highest value was achieved by the Fe45Al sample. The gas conversion of CH4 to CO2 was also quite dependent on the weight content of Fe2O3. Essentially, Fe45Al delivered the longest duration on high-level conversion (i.e., complete conversion of CH4 to CO2). In summary, Fe45Al was found to be the most suitable oxygen carrier candidate in this application. The effect of operational parameters was further examined with various reaction temperatures (873-1073 K), methane concentrations (0.1-1.5 vol %), and CO2 compositions (0-50 vol %).

A techno-economic analysis was carried out to assess the oxy-fuel conversion of eight major coal-fired power plants in the state of NSW, Australia. For this purpose, several alternative retrofit configurations, differing only in the air separation unit (ASU) but otherwise identical, were considered. More specifically, three types of oxygen plants were studied: a cryogenic-based air separation unit and integrated chemical looping air separation units using steam (ICLAS[S]) and recycled flue gas (ICLAS[FG]) as the reduction medium. The main objective of the techno-economic analysis was to determine if the economic viability of oxy-fuel operations could be enhanced by incorporating ICLAS technology. The results show that the normalized oxygen demand for the NSW fleet of coal-fired power plants was about 450-550 m3/MWh, with Bayswater having the lowest normalized oxygen demand and Munmorah having the highest one. Moreover, it was found that by replacing a cryogenic-based ASU with an ICLAS unit, the average reduction in the ASU power demand was up to 47% and 76%, respectively, for ICLAS[S] and ICLAS[FG]. Similarly, the average thermal efficiency penalty associated with the cryogenic and the ICLAS[S] and ICLAS[FG] units was found to be about 9.5%, 7.5%, and 5%, respectively, indicating that the ICLAS[FG] unit is the most energy efficient option for oxy-fuel plants. Economic analyses suggest that a retrofit cost reduction of about 32% can be achieved by incorporating an ICLAS[FG] unit. On average, the levelized cost of electricity associated with the cryogenic and the ICLAS[S] and ICLAS[FG] units for the NSW fleet of coal-fired power plants was found to be about $118/MWh, $105/MWh, and $95/MWh, respectively.

Statistical analyses are important for real-world validation of theoretical model predictions. In this article, a statistical analysis of real data shows empirically how thermal resistance, thermal mass, building design, season and external air temperature collectively affect indoor air temperature. A simple, four-point, diurnal, temperature-by-time profile is used to summarise daily thermal performance and is used as the response variable for the analysis of performance. The findings from the statistical analysis imply that, at least for moderate climates, the best performing construction/design will be one in which insulation and thermal mass arrangements can be dynamically altered to suit weather and season.

Abstract Greenhouses typically employ conventional burner systems to suffice heat and carbon dioxide required for plant growth. The energy requirement and carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuel burner are generally high. As an alternative, this paper describes a novel greenhouse calcium looping process which is expected to decrease the energy requirements and associated carbon dioxide emissions. The conceptual design of greenhouse calcium looping process is carried out in the ASPEN Plus v 7.3 simulator. In a greenhouse calcium looping process, the calcination reaction is considered to take place during day time in order to provide the required optimum carbon dioxide between 1000 and 2000 ppm, while the carbonation reaction is occurred during night time to provide required heat. The process simulations carried out in ASPEN indicates that greenhouse calcium looping process theoretically attributes to zero emission of carbon dioxide. Moreover, in a scenario modelling study compared to the conventional natural gas burner system, the heat duty requirements in the greenhouse calcium looping process were found to reduce by as high as 72%.

The correct calculation of cell void fraction is pivotal in accurate simulation of two-phase flows using a computational fluid dynamics-discrete element method (CFD-DEM) approach. Two classical approaches for void fraction calculations (i.e., particle centroid method or PCM and analytical approach) were examined, and the accuracy of these methodologies in predicting the particle-fluid flow characteristics of bubbling fluidized beds was investigated. It was found that there is a critical cell size (3.82 particle diameters) beyond which the PCM can achieve the same numerical stability and prediction accuracy as those of the analytical approach. There is also a critical cell size (1/19.3 domain size) below which meso-scale flow structures are resolved. Moreover, a lower limit of cell size (1.63 particle diameters) was identified to satisfy the assumptions of CFD-DEM governing equations. A reference map for selecting the ideal computational cell size and the suitable approach for void fraction calculation was subsequently developed. © 2014 American Institute of Chemical Engineers.

In a liquid fluidised bed system, the motion of each phase is governed by fluid-particle and particle-particle interactions. The particle-particle collisions can significantly affect the motion of individual particles and hence the solid-liquid two phase flow characteristics. In the current work, computational fluid dynamics-discrete element method (CFD-DEM) simulations of a dense foreign particle introduced in a monodispersed solid-liquid fluidised bed (SLFB) have been carried out. The fluidisation hydrodynamics of SLFB, settling behaviour of the foreign particle, fluid-particle interactions, and particle-particle collision behaviour have been investigated. Experiments including particle classification velocity measurements and fluid turbulence characterisation by particle image velocimetry (PIV) were conducted for the validation of prediction results. Compared to those predicted by empirical correlations, the particle classification velocity predicted by CFD-DEM provided the best agreement with the experimental data (less than 10% deviation). The particle collision frequency increased monotonically with the solid fraction. The dimensionless collision frequency obtained by CFD-DEM excellently fit the data line predicted by the kinetic theory for granular flow (KTGF). The particle collision frequency increased with the particle size ratio (dP2/dP1) and became independent of the foreign particle size for high solid fractions when the fluidised particle size was kept constant. The magnitude of collision force was 10-50 times greater than that of gravitational force and maximally 9 times greater than that of drag force. A correlation describing the collision force as a function of bed voidage was developed for Stp>65 and dP2/dP1=2. A maximum deviation of less than 20% was obtained when the correlation was used for the prediction of particle collision force. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd.

The interactions between vitrinite and inertinite-rich coals and the ionic liquid butylimidazolium chloride ([bmim][Cl]) heated to 100 C have been characterised. Differences in the interactions of coal macerals and ionic liquids have been identified. [bmim][Cl] is able to dissolve 22 wt% of a high-vitrinite coal fraction compared to 14 wt% of a high-inertinite coal fraction. The vitrinite-rich coal fraction tends to swell to a greater extent compared to the inertinite-rich coal fraction, which was fractured and fragmented rather than swelled. © 2013 Published by Elsevier Ltd.

The loaded salts (NaCl, KCl, MgCl2, and CaCl2) have significantly different influence on the contribution of dehydration and depolymerization reactions to the decomposition of sugar structures during cellulose fast pyrolysis at 325 °C. The structures of salt-loaded celluloses already become cross-linked during heating-up period, largely due to the enhanced dehydration reactions catalyzed by inorganic species. As stronger Lewis acids, the alkaline earth metal ions (Mg2+ and Ca2+) are more effective than the alkali metal ions (Na+ and K+) to catalyze the dehydration reactions of sugar structures, leading to the formation of more cross-linked cellulose for the alkaline earth metal chloride-loaded celluloses. As a result, the majority of Mg and Ca are transformed into water-insoluble forms during the heating-up period, largely reducing the catalytic effects of these species on the dehydration of sugar structures during the subsequent isothermal pyrolysis. Rather, the dehydration of non-sugar structures is enhanced because the catalytic species are already bonded with non-sugar structures. In contrast, the dehydration of sugar structures during the heating-up period is less significant for the NaCl-loaded and KCl-loaded celluloses. The majority of Na and K are water-soluble after the heating-up period so that the dehydration of sugar structures is further enhanced during isothermal pyrolysis. The loaded salts have less influence on the depolymerization reactions. The contribution of depolymerization reactions to sugar conversion is relatively small during the heating-up stage, but increases substantially during isothermal pyrolysis. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd.

Release of fugitive methane (CH) emissions from ventilation air in coal mines is a major source of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Approximately 64% of methane emissions in coal mine operations are the result of VAM (i.e. ventilation air methane) which is difficult for use as a source of energy. A novel ancillary utilization of VAM was thereby proposed. In this proposal, the VAM was utilized instead of air as a feedstock to a chemical looping combustion (CLC) process of coal. In this case, FeO/FeO particles were shuttled between two interconnected reactors for combustion of syngas produced by an imbedded coal gasifier. The effect of VAM flow rate and methane concentration on the performance of CLC was analyzed thermodynamically using Aspen Plus software. Results indicated that the variations of air reactor temperature with VAM flow rate and methane concentration can be minimized as expected. The effect of temperature and inlet methane concentration on the conversion of CH was examined experimentally in a fixed bed reactor with the presence of particles of FeO/AlO. Not surprisingly, the reaction temperature put a significant influence on the conversion of CH. The conversion started at the temperature about 300 °C and the temperature to achieve full conversion was around 500 °C while the temperature in empty reactor between 665 °C and 840 °C. This is due to the catalytic effect of oxygen carriers (i.e. FeO/AlO) on the conversion of methane. Moreover, it was observed that the methane conversion rate decreased with the increase in inlet methane concentration while increasing with FeO loading content. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd.

In a chemical looping combustor (CLC) system, the solid circulation rate (SCR) is a key parameter that determines the design, operating conditions and the overall efficiency of the system. In the present work, the gas-solid flow of a CLC cold flow model (10kWth) has been simulated by the computational fluid dynamics-discrete element method (CFD-DEM). The results showed that the SCR at different locations of the system fluctuates with time with different amplitude, and the variation of SCR is periodically stable. The turbulent gas-solid flow regime in the air reactor was found to be the main mechanism driving the fluctuation of SCR and determined the fluctuation frequency and amplitude. The SCR increased with the flow rates of air/fuel reactors and loop seals, and the total solid inventory. Changes in operating conditions directly induced the change in the mass of solids that were entrained into the riser from the air reactor and how fast the solids were transported therein. A correlation was subsequently proposed to describe the SCR as a function of solid hold-up and gas flow velocity in the riser. The particle residence time decreased in a power law as the SCR increased. Reasonable agreements were obtained between simulations and experiments in terms of solid distribution, gas-solid flow patterns, pressure drop profiles and SCR.

This experimental study was conducted to investigate the rate of flame spread over an inclined porous solid (sand) wetted with finite quantities of fuel (iso-propanol). The study comprised experiments that were conducted over 15° and 30° inclined beds with depths ranging from 13.3 mm to 39.9 mm and consisting of average sand particle diameters ranging from 0.5 mm to 5 mm under quiescent, assisted and opposed airflow conditions. Analysis of the resulting data indicate that the rate of flame spread is significantly decreased by increasing the bed inclination angle or the airflow velocity and is applicable for both assisted and opposed directions. Furthermore, the rate of flame spread is decreased to the minimum value and actually ceased halfway along the bed with a 30° inclination angle. This behaviour was observed mainly for beds containing coarse sand particles. The rate of flame spread was higher for thinner beds rather coarse beds under any given airflow conditions. Finally, the rate of flame spread in upward direction was relatively quicker in comparison with downward direction counterpart. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

The chemical looping air separation (CLAS) is a novel method for producing high-purity oxygen, which can be effectively integrated to oxy-fuel power plants. CuO/Cu2O, Mn2O3/Mn3O 4, and Co3O4/CoO have been found to be the most thermodynamically suitable oxidation pairs for the CLAS process. In the current study, the reactivity and stability of these metal oxides were analyzed further. A total of six different oxygen carrier samples were prepared by the dry impregnation method on SiO2 and Al2O3 supports. Their redox behavior has been investigated in a thermogravimetric analyzer (TGA) at four different temperatures, i.e., 800, 850, 900, and 950 C, where the temperature-programmed oxygen release and oxidation were applied for 5 continuous cycles using nitrogen and air, respectively. The results indicate that, although relatively all oxygen carriers exhibited good reactivity, CuO/Cu2O with SiO2 and Co3O4/CoO with Al2O3 were found to be most stable. Furthermore, oxygen transport capacity (OTC) (%) and rate of oxygen transport (ROT) (% min-1) were calculated. It was found that Cu oxide with SiO 2 has the highest OTC of 4.77% as well as the highest ROT of 5.1 and 10.9% min-1 for oxygen release and oxidation, respectively, at 950 C. The CuO/SiO2 oxygen carrier also exhibited better stability for the 41 continuous cycle test, with only 10.3% loss in OTC compared to 22.3% for Co3O4/Al2O3. The grain size growth was found to be the key cause in the loss of OTC. The oxygen concentration in the outlet stream for the CuO/SiO2 oxygen carrier was measured in packed-bed experiments at different temperatures. It was observed that the oxygen concentration at the outlet of the reactor was consistent with the equilibrium values at studied temperatures. © 2014 American Chemical Society.

Coke oven gas cleaning is an important issue in China, where it can be a source of liquefied natural gas (LNG) through the methanation process. In this study, char-supported sorbents were prepared by loading iron, cerium, and molybdenum into a Chinese lignite through co-precipitation, and the sorbents were used for dry desulfurization of coke oven gases. Desulfurization efficiency of the sorbents was examined using a fixed-bed reactor in a temperature range of 473-673 K using a simulated coke oven gas. A gas chromatograph equipped with both a flame photometric detector (FPD) and a thermal conductivity detector (TCD) was used to analyze gas composition, while X-ray diffraction and scanning electron microscopy were used to examine chemical phases and the dispersion pattern of the active constitutes of the sorbents. The experimental results showed that the highest desulfurization efficiency and sulfur capacity appeared at 673 K. The reactivity of the nanosized active components in the char increased with increasing the desulfurization temperature in the temperature range of 473-673 K. In the case of Fe-Mo-impregnated sorbents, Fe and Mo combined together to form complex Fe-Mo oxide phases. The introduction of Mo in the sorbent is found to greatly increase the sulfur capacity and desulfurization efficiency of the Fe sorbent supported on activated chars. The addition of Ce leads to noticeable improvement of the performance of Fe sorbent during sulfidation. The mechanisms and factors influencing the sulfidation reactions have also been discussed. © 2014 American Chemical Society.

In this study the transition from homogeneous to heterogeneous flow in a solid-liquid fluidized bed (SLFB) is examined both experimentally and numerically. The experimental apparatus comprised a refractive index-matched SLFB, comprising 5. mm diameter borosilicate glass and sodium iodine solution, which allowed for both instantaneous particle image velocimetry of the liquid flow field and solids hold-up measurements to be undertaken for superficial liquid velocities in the range of 0.06-0.22. m/s. The motion of individual, spherical steel balls (with diameters 6, 7, 8, 9. mm) was then tracked as it settled through the fluidized bed for differing superficial liquid velocities. It was observed that, for all the steel balls covered in this work, there was a change in slope in their respective classification velocity curves at a superficial liquid velocity of 0.08. m/s. This value was very close to the critical velocity of 0.085. m/s predicted from 1-D linear stability analysis; and therefore deemed to be the critical condition that marked the transition from homogeneous to non-homogenous flow. It is proposed that the change in slope of the classification velocity curve is due to the encounter of the settling foreign particles with liquid bubbles whose presence marks the onset of heterogeneous flow. Additional computational analysis, involving both Eulerian-Eulerian (E-E) and Eulerian-Lagrangian (E-L) approaches, is used to confirm the presence of liquid bubbles at a critical liquid hold-up of 0.54, which corresponds to that predicted from 1-D linear stability analysis. In summary, the study has highlighted that experimentally the transition condition for a SLFB can be obtained simply by observing the behavior of the classification velocity of a single foreign particle at different superficial liquid velocities. This transition condition was found to agree with the 1D linear stability criterion, Eulerian-Eulerian CFD (3D) and Eulerian-Lagrangian DEM (3D) approaches. © 2014 Elsevier B.V.

Integrated Chemical Looping Air Separation (ICLAS) offers an energy efficient and cost effective option for large-scale oxygen generation in oxy-fuel type power plants. Oxygen production in the ICLAS is achieved by reduction of oxidised metal oxides in an environment of steam/recycled flue gas (CO2-rich) using a dedicated reduction reactor. This paper provides the results of a thermodynamic investigation into the effect of flue gas impurities on the reduction of three metal oxide oxygen carriers (Cu, Mn and Co oxides) under conditions pertinent to an oxy-fuel coal-fired power plant. Relevant calculations were carried out using the Fact-sage 6.1 thermodynamic equilibrium calculation software package. Different gas streams, namely crude/wet, dry, pure CO2 and steam were considered in the simulations together with the additional hypothetical impure flue gas stream having larger concentrations of CO, SO2 and NO. Effects of SO2, NO, CO and O2 contents of the flue gas on oxygen carrier conversion and oxygen decoupling process were investigated in detail. It was established that the successful reduction of metal oxides in the presence of flue gas impurities can only be achieved at higher temperatures due to increased partial pressure of O2 and the formation of metal sulphates at temperatures less than 800-900 °C. This may increase the operating and capital costs of the CLAS based oxygen production. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

Performance of chemical looping combustion processes can be improved drastically by enhancing the overall redox characteristics of the system through the use of binary mixtures of oxygen carriers. However, binary mixtures of oxygen carrier particles are often found to differ in both size and density and therefore have the tendency to segregate under certain operating conditions.In this work, a numerical study was conducted to investigate the mixing and segregation behaviour of binary mixtures of particles with different sizes and densities in a bubbling fluidized bed under conditions pertinent to the fuel reactor of a cold flow model (i.e. a non-reacting replica) of a 10kWth chemical looping combustor. The motion of particles was tracked individually by discrete element model (DEM), whilst the gas flow was modelled by computational fluid dynamics (CFD). Gas-particle interactions were considered by a two-way coupling method. Further, a modified version of Lacey's method was developed to calculate the mixing index, taking into account both the heterogeneity of solids spatial distribution and particle size differences.Results showed that the modified Lacey's method provided very consistent and stable mixing indexes, proving to be effective for an in-situ quantitative description of mixing. It was also found that as the size ratio of the binary mixture of particles reduced, the mixing index increased indicating better mixing conditions. The agreement between the DEM/CFD model predictions and the experimental data was found to be satisfactory. The optimum conditions for mixing of binary mixtures appeared to be a function of bubble size, bubble rising rate and bubbling dynamics (e.g., splitting and coalescence). Application of the DEM/CFD model for prediction of layer inversion phenomenon in gas-solid fluidized beds was also demonstrated. © 2012 Elsevier B.V.

This study experimentally investigates the application of a solid-liquid micro-fluidised bed as a micro-mixing device. The experiments were performed in a borosilicate capillary tube with an internal diameter of 1.2. mm (i.e. near the upper-limit dimension of a micro-fluidic system) using borosilicate particles with a mean diameter of 98 µm. Refractive index matching technique using sodium iodide solution was employed to achieve a transparent fluidised bed. Mixing performance of the micro-fluidised bed in terms of mixing time was investigated using a dye dilution technique. Experiments were carried out in the creeping flow regime at Reynolds numbers ranging between 0.27 and 0.72. It was demonstrated that the micro-fluidised bed mixing time sharply decreases as the Reynolds number increases. That is because at relatively high Reynolds numbers, the particle oscillation is stronger creating larger disturbances in the flow. The energy dissipation rate in micro fluidised bed was estimated to be four orders of magnitude less than other passive micro mixers which operate in the turbulent regime. It was also demonstrated that the ratio of mixing time and the energy dissipation rate for fluidised bed micro-mixer was comparable to K-M, Tangential IMTEK, and interdigital micro-mixers. However, the fluidised bed micro-mixer was found to operate at much lower Reynolds numbers compared to other passive mixers, with a mixing time of the order of few seconds. © 2013 The Institution of Chemical Engineers.

Fires caused by accidental spillage of flammable liquids have been a major safety concern in industries and urban areas. There has been a recent surge of interest in the research concerning the combustion and flame spread over an inert porous media soaked with flammable liquid. This interest has been driven by the need to better understand fire and its behaviour under these conditions and improve the relevant fire safety and prevention technologies. A review of key studies in this subject area has been conducted and summarised, focussing mainly on the theory plus a notable experimental findings about combustion and the flame spread phenomena of fuel-soaked porous media. The review covers topics such as flame spread behaviour, physical flame propagation aspects, heat transfer, temperature distribution; and fuel consumption over inert porous media. The review concludes with some practical safety and environmental considerations for decontamination of land soaked with flammable liquid. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

An experimental investigation was conducted to explore the rate of flame spread over an unconsolidated porous bed of sand wetted with 2-propanol under a range of operating conditions. Video cinematography was employed to determine the rate of flame spread and characterise the combustion behaviour of the system. The rate of flame spread strongly correlated with: (i) the ratio of fuel volume to the weight of the sand bed, referred to as FR, and (ii) the flame initiation delay, referred to as FID. The rates of flame spread associated with no initiation delay cases were found to rise with increasing FR while for cases associated with any given flame initiation delay the rate of flame spread was found to decrease with increasing FR. In addition, the rate of change in flame spread was observed to be different for beds containing finer particles in comparison to those containing coarser ones. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.

In a typical chemical looping combustion process, the oxygen for fuel combustion is supplied by circulating metal based oxygen carriers between two interconnected fluidised bed reactors. The redox characteristics of oxygen carriers and hence the overall performance of the process can be significantly improved by utilising binary mixtures of oxygen carrier particles. The full potential of such multi-species particle systems however can be only realised when particles segregation is minimised. This study is concerned with gaining an understanding of the mixing and segregation behaviour of binary mixtures of oxygen carrier particles with different sizes and densities in a cold flow model representing a 10. kWth chemical looping combustor. The hydrodynamics of such systems were investigated and compared with a typical chemical looping combustion process where single species are used. This was followed by investigating the solids mixing and segregation behaviour in terms of segregation intensity and species weight percentage at each reactor as a function of operating parameters. It was shown that increasing the total solid inventory, particle terminal velocity ratio, composition, and air reactor superficial velocity increases the riser pressure, solid circulation rates, and riser solid holdup. Mixing and segregation regimes of the fuel reactor and the component segregation between the two reactors were also mapped. The results showed that, for mixtures of species with low terminal velocity to high terminal velocity ratios of greater than 0.7, a good mixing in the fuel reactor can be achieved by maintaining the superficial gas velocity to the mixture minimum fluidisation velocity ratio above 5. For the tested conditions, the component segregation between the two reactors was avoided by maintaining the ratio of the riser superficial velocity to the terminal velocity of the species with a high terminal velocity between 1.25 and 2. © 2013 Elsevier B.V.

The Chemical Looping Air Separation (CLAS) process was developed at the University of Newcastle for tonnage oxygen production. CLAS has a much lower energy intensity than conventional processes, requiring only 12 % of the specific power consumption; however, there are still some energy penalties associated with the CLAS process. The most significant being the large amounts of energy consumed in the steam generation and condensation processes. The aim of this study is to increase the energy efficiency of the CLAS process via membrane integration. If a high temperature oxygen transport membrane is introduced in the reduction reactor of the CLAS system, pure oxygen is produced without the need for a steam condenser. The most attractive oxygen transport membrane is Ba0.5Sr0.5Co0.8Fe0.2 (BSCF) owing to its high oxygen permeation flux. The BSCF membrane was utilised to study the oxygen permeation flux, oxygen recovery and energy saving of the integrated process compared to the typical CLAS process. A mathematical model was developed for the BSCF disk membrane to predict the oxygen permeation flux and oxygen recovery over a range of temperatures. Constants of the model were fitted using experimental data. The modelling results showed almost 10 % and 13 % energy savings in the low and high temperature membrane integrated CLAS processes over the typical CLAS, respectively.
