The lecture concerns the use of molten salts to capture CO2 from exhaust gases. The method, abbreviated as CCMS (carbon capture in molten salts), is an expansion of the well-known calcium loop (CaL) method, which uses a solid sorbent in the form of CaO to capture CO 2 from flue gases and bind it into CaCO 3 carbonate. In the next stage, the carbonate is calcined at a higher temperature and CO 2 is released, which can be further utilized (CCU) or stored (CCS). The CCMS method is currently at
the stage of research on a laboratory scale; there is no developed and operational reactor. The principles of the method will be presented, as well as the development of design assumptions and the construction of the first prototype three-chamber CCMS reactor and then its validation.
