Membranes for post-combustion CO2 capture: How far to commercialization

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Chemical absorption is one of the mature technologies for post-combustion CO2 capture. The fixed-site-carrier membranes developed by Norwegian University of Science and Technology, the PolyActive™ membranes from Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht, and the Polaris membrane developed by Membrane Technology and Research, are the frontiers in post-combustion CO2 capture using membrane technology. This chapter provides a review on the progress of membrane materials and process development related to post-combustion CO2 captures from power plants and industries was conducted. The main focus on the development of membrane materials for post-combustion CO2 capture is to produce high performance membranes with long lifetime at a low cost. Application of CO2 capture from cement kilns would have great potential to reduce CO2 emission from this industry, but will naturally influence cement production cost. Gas separation membrane systems could be an environmentally friendly technology for post combustion CO2 capture in the near future by the joint force from membrane science and engineering.
