Title: METHODS AND SYSTEMS FOR THERMAL ENERGY RECOVERY FROM PRODUCTION OF SOLID CARBON MATERIALS BY REDUCING CARBON OXIDES
Abstract:
A method of thermal energy recovery from production of at least one solid carbon material comprises reacting at least one carbon oxide material and at least one gaseous reducing material at a temperature of greater than or equal to about 400°C, at a pressure greater than or equal to about 1 x 105 pascal, and in the presence of at least one catalyst material to produce at least one solid carbon material and a gaseous effluent stream comprising water vapor. Thermal energy is extracted from the gaseous effluent stream comprising water vapor. Other methods of generating recoverable thermal energy are disclosed, as is a solid carbon production system having thermal energy recovery.
