About this book

This open access book surveys the development of OCAC technology in the last decade for solid fuel conversion in fluidized beds. The scientific concerns, including combustion and emission characteristics, ash-related problems, OC aging, and so on, are summarized and analyzed. Beyond this, new concepts like OCAC with Oxy-PFBC, OCAC coupled with staged fuel conversion, OCAC in rotatory kilns and multi-functional OCAC are proposed, so as to promote the applications of OCAC to various fields in the future. Moreover, this book also outlines the perspectives for future research and development of OCAC. As an emerging technology, extensive studies and investigations are still necessary to fill in the gap from the fundamental understanding of the technology to its industrial demonstrations. Nevertheless, we believe that this book provides novel insights for the readership of energy and combustion and stimulate meaningful follow-on research on OCAC technology.

Lunbo Duan obtained his doctoral degree in Environmental Engineering from Southeast University in 2010. After that, he worked as a lecturer at the the School of Energy and Environment at Southeast University, and was appointed as Associate Professor and Professor in 2012 and 2018, respectively. Funded by Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPRSC), he worked as a research fellow at Cranfield University in UK from 2014 to 2015. He has received funding from various institutions, including the National Natural Science Foundation of China, Ministry of Science and Technology (China), Korean Institute of Energy Research and Babcock & Wilcox group (U.S.). He has published more than 200 papers in peer reviewed journals, and 4 papers have been selected as "ESI Highly Cited Papers". He has won the second prize of the Natural Science Award of the Ministry of Education (China) in 2014 (Rank 4) and 2018 (Rank 1).


Lin Lireceived his doctoral degree in Power Engineering and Engineering Thermophysics from Southeast University in 2021. From 2019 to 2020, he worked as a joint training PhD student at the CanmetENERGY-Ottawa, Natural Resources Canada for 15 months. Now he is a postdoctoral fellow in Southeast University. He has received funding from the National Natural Science Foundation of China, Postdoctoral Innovative Talent Support Program and Jiangsu Funding Program for Excellent Postdoctoral Talent, and he has published 25 papers in peer-reviewed journals. He has been working with the solid fuel combustion in fluidized bed, oxy-fuel combustion and oxygen carrier aided combustion.
