Coal will still be a significant component of power generation for years to come, and carbon dioxide capture systems will be the essential feature of clean coal in the future. Those who promise to deliver low carbon dioxide capture costs are committed to the pipeline and future systems. So far, many methods of carbon dioxide capture have proved costly and energy-hungry based on coal system additives. Besides, it is continually moving other industries to effectively utilize the amount of carbon present in carbon dioxide and move toward carbon capture and reuse, which is marketed ready for carbon dioxide, but it has different requirements on product quality. This paper aims to review the methods of carbon capture technologies and develop an optimal method for the green coal combustion process using the Energy and Exergy Analysis. According to the results of this paper, the Chemical Looping Combustion is the most suitable method for this process, and with the coal, powerplants using CLC technologies, the Green Coal target can be made real.
