his paper investigates the trace element content of calcium oxide sorbent after repeated cycles of calcination and carbonation in the presence of fuel combustion during the calcination step. The trace element content of the sorbent was measured using ICP-OES after a wet acid digestion procedure. The weight % of alite, the cement phase responsible for short-term strength of the cement, has been measured using XRD for cement prepared in the laboratory from single cycled and repeatedly cycled sorbent. The results indicate that repeated cycling does lead to an increase in the concentration of some trace elements entering the sorbent from the fuel. However the increase in these concentrations was not enough to impact upon the weight % of alite in the resulting clinkers produced from the sorbent.
