Chemical looping combustion (CLC) is an emerging, new technology for carbon capture and storage (CCS). Copper-based oxygen carriers are of particular interest due to their high oxygen carrying capacity and reactivity, low tendency for carbon deposition, and exothermic reduction reactions. In this work, CuO-based and Al2O3 stabilized oxygen carriers with high CuO loadings were developed using a co-precipitation technique. The cyclic redox performance of the synthesized oxygen carriers was evaluated at 800 °C in a laboratory-scale fluidized bed reactor using a reducing atmosphere comprised of 10 vol. % CH4 and 90 vol. % N2. The CuO content in the oxygen carrier was found to increase with the pH value at which the co-precipitation was performed. The oxygen carrying capacity of the oxygen carrier containing 87.8 wt. % CuO was found to be high (5.5 mmol O2/g oxygen carrier) and stable over 25 redox cycles. Increasing the CuO content further, i.e. > 90 wt. % resulted in materials which showed a decreasing oxygen carrying capacity with cycle number. It was also shown that the incorporation of K+ ions in the oxygen carrier can avoid the formation of the spinel CuAl2O4 and significantly reduce carbon deposition.
