Ca-looping is one of the most promising processes for CO2 capture in short to medium term plants, which can be applied for both post-combustion and pre-combustion layouts. The recent successful operations of MW-scale pilot plants are leading to an increased interest in this technology. In addition, the particularly advantageous applicability in cement plants, the main industrial contributors to CO2 emissions worldwide, can further lead to a forthcoming development of the technology. Quite a large amount of scientific papers on reactors and process modeling has been published in the recent years and more studies are expected to be published in the future. According to the experience of the authors in this field and on the basis of a literature review, suggestions and modeling needs for next works are provided in this paper.
