Abstract: This study aims to investigate the feasibility of the Mg-Cl hybrid thermochemical cycle and to develop a more cost and energy effective cycle. There are five key elements of this study: (i) modeling and simulation of the Mg-Cl cycle considering both the ideal reference case and realistic operating conditions; (ii) novel configuration developments of the Mg-Cl cycle through literature review of experimental and theoretical studies on the intermediate reaction steps to identify potential cycle improvement options; (iii) experimental investigations to validate the proposed configurations of the Mg-Cl cycle; (iv) comprehensive thermodynamic and thermoeconomic assessments, and optimization of the Mg-Cl cycle; (v) cycle integration with sustainable energy systems and hydrogen storage options.
