Heterogeneous solid–gas thermochemical processes are important technologies with applicability to many research fields and industries. One such emerging field is concentrated solar thermochemistry. Carbonate-based thermochemical looping systems are being considered for use with concentrated solar thermal energy for the applications of carbon dioxide capture, thermochemical energy storage, and the production of synthetic transportation fuels.

This seminar will include overviews of (1) the potential role of concentrated solar thermal technology in the future world energy market, (2) the current research efforts and facilities in the Solar Thermal Group of the ANU College of Engineering & Computer Science, and (3) research conducted on solar carbonate-based chemical looping at the particle, reactor, and process levels.
