The use of strucutred adsorbents in PSA and TSA processes has been suggested for many decades. However, there has been limited commercialization. This is rather surprising since much has been patented and published on this topic. In this presentation an overview on the use of strucutred adsorbents in PSA and TSA processes will be given. Examples will be taken from commercial processes, the patent literature, journal articles and the authors' own experiences with strucutred adsorbents in their adsorption process laboratory.
