1. A carbon capture system comprising:
a Carbonator configured to adsorb carbon dioxide using a first fresh carbon dioxide lean sorbent and a second purged carbon dioxide lean sorbent to generate a carbon dioxide rich sorbent;
a supply of raw material containing a carbon dioxide rich sorbent;
a first Calciner configured to calcine the supply of raw material to provide the first fresh carbon dioxide lean sorbent and a first carbon dioxide stream;
a first input to the Carbonator configured to receive at least the first fresh carbon dioxide lean sorbent from the first Calciner;
a second Calciner configured to thermally decompose a carbon dioxide rich sorbent into the second purged carbon dioxide lean sorbent and a second carbon dioxide stream;
a second input to the Carbonator configured to receive the second purged carbon dioxide lean sorbent from the second Calciner; and
a first output from the Carbonator configured to transfer at least the carbon dioxide rich sorbent to the second Calciner.
