Converting CO2 and steam (H2O) into synthesis gas is a new route to recycle them to fuels. Conversions are performed via a two-step conversion method in which catalysts are heated up and cooled down repeatedly with CO and H2 as the products. To make the method economic, solar energy is employed to drive conversion systems. A solar-driven system with fluidized bed reactors is proposed for CO2 conversion in this paper, and numerical models are built to study its performance and find out the optimum working condition. The investigation proves that system is a competent candidate to power the two-step conversion of CO2 for the carbon recycle and the syngas production.
