Calcium looping is an emerging technology for post-combustion carbon dioxide capture and storage in development. In this study, a 1-dimensional dynamical model for the calcium looping process was developed. The model was tested against a laboratory scale 30 kW test rig at INCAR-CSIC, Spain. The study concentrated on steady-state simulations of the carbonator reactor. Capture efficiency and reactor temperature profile were compared against experimental data. First results showed good agreement between the experimental observations and simulations.
