Role in CHEERS

WP 6: Demonstration in operational environment and recommendations at TRL7
The prototype testing will be organised, prepared, carried out and duly reported. Basis will be a 3MWth CLC reactor system that will be partially integrated (compliant to TRL5 and TRL6) and fully integrated into a system prototype (compliant to TRL7) This work package organises the construction work at the test site including the 3MWth CLC-CCS system prototype demonstrator designed in work package 4, carries out the auto-thermal operations and test campaigns of the CLC-CCS system, and obtains critical technologies of CLC including fuel reactor, carbon stripper, solid feed system, oxygen polishing unit, etc. The following steps apply:

  • Interface definition and specificities at test site; this will be clarified prior to project start-
    up, and will be discussed among all CHEERS partners to be finally decided at Launch
    event (cf. WP1, D1.1).
  • Organise the construction design and equipment manufacturing and purchase of 3MWth
    CLC-CCS system prototype.
  • Build and operate the 3MWth CLC-CCS system prototype, for different purposes of test
  • Demonstrate and gain knowledge by detailed analysis of the test data from the 3MWth
    CLC-CCS system prototype to identify critical parts of the technology.
  • Gain experience for future scale-up of the CLC technology to commercial size.
