New Materials for Membrane Separations
- Type: Archived Webinar
Because of the benefits of membrane-based chemical separations over other methods (e.g., smaller device footprints, lower energy use compared to distillation), there has been recent interest in applying membranes to new separation problems, as well as improving membrane materials used in existing separations. Consequently, there is a need for better membrane materials in general.
For researchers working on the design of new membrane materials, it is important to not only consider the design factors that afford better separation selectivity but to also consider the other factors that afford good productivity as well. Often it is these materials engineering factors that decide whether a membrane material is viable in practical separation or not.
Engineers who have needs related to light gas separations, especially CO2 from other light gases, and/or water treatment can benefit from this presentation. These needs are prevalent in many industries including power generation, petrochemical, biorefining and energy sector in general.
Professor Rich Noble is the Alfred T and Betty E Professor of Chemical Engineering and Co-Director of the NSF Membrane Applied Science and Technology (MAST) Center at the University of Colorado at Boulder. He is an internationally recognized leader in the use of novel membrane and thin-film materials, including zeolites, ionic liquids and liquid crystal materials for chemical separations.
He has received several awards including the CU Inventor of the Year Award (2008), the AIChE Institute Excellence in Industrial Gas Technology Award (2010), the AIChE Separations Division Clarence...Read more
