In this work we present a framework to find the potential heat recovery from Chemical Looping Combustion (CLC) using different combinations of oxygen carriers and solid fuels, based on thermodynamic equilibrium calculations. This framework requires thermodynamic information of the reacting species, which is readily available, and no kinetic information for each oxygen carrier, which is scarcer, is required. As the results of this framework are independent of the configuration of the CLC reactor, this tool can aid in the preliminary evaluation of oxygen carriers with potential for CLC applications and relevant operating conditions.
