Chemical looping combustion is a significant process in which it separates the combustion fuels into oxidation and reduction reactions. The required oxygen is provided to the fuel by a suitable metal oxide in this process known as oxygen carrier. The fuel reacts with the metal oxide in the fuel reactor and reduces it. The reduced metal oxide circulates to the air reactor where it is oxidized with air. The metal oxide keeps circulation between the fuel and air reactors to make a chemical reaction going. The product of the fuel reactor consists of H2O and pure CO2 in which both products can be separated and CO2 can be captured. The plant is self-sufficient in terms of electricity, and supplies a total of 480 MW which will be the main product of this power plant.
