dc.description.abstractThe aim of this study is to perform a review of the state-of-the-art of the reactors available in the literature, which are used for solid-gas reactions or thermal decomposition processes around 1000 ºC that could be further implemented for thermochemical energy storage in CSP (concentrated solar power) plants, specifically for SPT (solar power tower) technology. Both direct and indirect systems can be implemented, with direct and closed systems being the most studied ones. Among direct and closed systems, the most used configuration is the stacked bed reactor, with the fixed bed reactor being the most frequent option. Out of all of the reactors studied, almost 70% are used for solid-gas chemical reactions. Few data are available regarding solar efficiency in most of the processes, and the available information indicates relatively low values. Chemical reaction efficiencies show better values, especially in the case of a fluidized bed reactor for solid-gas chemical reactions, and fixed bed and rotary reactors for thermal decompositions.
