Chemical-looping combustion (CLC) is a new kind of efficient method to separate CO2. At present, most of CLC research focuses on the development of oxygen carriers. The sustainable capability is the one of important standards to evaluate performance of oxygen carrier. The iron- based and copper- based oxygen carrier were chosen in this paper. The comparative study between the analytically pure oxygen carriers and the prepared oxygen carriers with Al2O3 were made according to the reactivity of reduction and oxidation. The data was obtained by the TGA, SEM and XRD. The results show that the prepared carriers with Al2O3 are greatly improved both in reaction ratio and sustainable capability, and Fe- based oxygen carrier is better than the Cu- based oxygen carrier in the sustainable capability.
