Comparison between the heat rate and the CO2 emissions of fired CLC-CC systems with those of unfired CLC-CCs (point “U”) and those of conventional NG-fired CC (point “C”). In all cases, the temperature at the outlet of the reduction reactor is 850°C. A generation system comprising unfired CLC-CCs and conventional CCs would lie on the line connecting points C and U.
