Goal of Research project

Development of high performance membranes/adsorbents and separation processes for CO and CH₄ recovery

Research contents

  • Development of large-area hybrid composite membranes for CO/N₂, CO/CO₂, CH₄/N₂, and N₂/CH₄ separations
  • Development of adsorbent for the application of Mixed matrix membranes for N₂/CH₄ separation
  • Establishment of bench-scale membrane(1 N㎥/hr) separation processes
  • Design of pilot-scale (10 N㎥/hr) separation processes and economic evaluation

Future utilization and vision

  • [Applications and technological contributions] By obtaining high purity CO and CH₄ at low costs, we hope to develop technologies for the mass production of renewable gas, thereby securing the lead in relevant markets worldwide.
  • [Social contributions] We would be able to respond to climate change regulations as well as to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions by developing advanced CO and CH₄ recovery technologies.
