Abstract: This paper reports the modelling and simulation results of the Steam Methane Reforming (SMR) looping process, using sorbent and catalyst materials, by means of the Computational Particle Fluid Dynamics (CPFD) method, with an Eulerian-Lagrangian approach. The method resulted to be very powerful with respect to simulation time and computational resources saving, also due to the capability of the Barracuda® code to make use of the Graphics Processing Units (GPUs).
