The Carbonate Looping technology as a post combustion process has been identified as one of the most promising approaches to capture CO2 from power plants at reasonable expenses. It can be integrated into existing power plants and, thus, is seen as a milestone towards CO2-free power plants.

In this short video, Professor Bernd Epple, Technical University Darmstadt, Germany, gives an introduction into the technology and shows the pilot plant which the Institute for Energy Systems and Energy Technology of the Technical University in Darmstadt has run for more than 1000 hours.
