New Materials for Membrane Separations

Originally delivered Mar 13, 2013

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.
