PE PEO Co-continuous Polymer Blends with Application in Gas Separate Membranes

Bluewater Power Distribution Corporation


Separation of acid gases, especially in the natural gas industry, has long been dominated by high pressure solvent absorption processes. These processes, however, are not feasible for performing separations at remote locations, small feedstock or on natural gas streams with a higher than average acid gas content. In these situations, membrane technology is a viable alternative.


Current commercial methods of membrane fabrication are limited in their ability to inexpensively produce membranes from highly selective materials. The goal of this research proposal was to design a commercial composite membrane for use in biogas and natural gas separations to remove acid gases such as CO2 from CH4.
