The only comprehensive and up-to-date handbook on this highly topical field, covering everything from new process concepts to commercial applications.
Describing novel developments as well as established methods, the authors start with the evaluation of different oxygen carriers and subsequently illuminate various technological concepts for the energy conversion process. They then go on to discuss the potential for commercial applications in gaseous, coal, and fuel combustion processes in industry.
The result is an invaluable source for every scientist in the field, from inorganic chemists in academia to chemical engineers in industry.
