The aim of the paper is to study the thermodynamic behavior of a non-conventional power cycle, named Carbon Carrier Cycle (CCC), which is expected to obtain interesting performance with low temperature heat source. The CCC may be regarded as derived from an absorption machine, where an expander replaces the condenser, the throttling valve and the evaporator. The working fluid is a mixture of CO2 and a proper absorber. In the paper, the thermodynamic model of this kind of cycles is described, and the results obtained considering Acetone as the absorber are discussed. A first performance comparison is then conducted with a more conventional Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC).
