Super-Dry Reforming: a champion technology for CO2 conversion

Following a chemical looping approach, scientists from the Laboratory for Chemical Technology at Ghent University have pioneered the development of an intensified process for efficient CO2 conversion: Super-Dry Reforming (SDR). Through a smart combination and integration of three existing industrial processes (CH4 dry reforming, CO2 capture by a sorbent and CO2 conversion over an oxygen …
