This is the first comprehensive guide to the principles and techniques of chemical looping partial oxidation. With authoritative explanations from a pioneer of the chemical looping process, you will: • Gain a holistic overview of metal oxide reaction engineering, with coverage of ionic diffusion, nanostructure formation, morphological evolution, phase equilibrium, and recyclability properties of metal oxides during redox reactions • Learn about the gasification of solid fuels, the reforming of natural gas, and the catalytic conversion of methane to olefins • Understand the importance of reactor design and process integration in enabling metal oxide oxygen carriers to produce desired products • Discover other applications of catalytic metal oxides, including the production of maleic anhydride and solar energy conversions Aspen Plus® simulation software and results accompany the book online. This is an invaluable reference for researchers and industry professionals in the fields of chemical, energy and environmental engineering, and students studying process design and optimization.
