Polymeric membranes for post-combustion carbon dioxide (CO2) capture

W. Yave and A. Car,     GKSS-Research Centre Geesthacht GmbH, Germany

Abstract:

This chapter focuses on membranes from block copolymers (e.g Pebax and Polyactive) and their potential application for flue gas processing in power plants. The development of membranes and their advantages and limitations are clearly presented. Recently developed polymeric membranes are reviewed from critical point of view, and some results under real conditions are also reported. A new approach for obtaining tailor-made polymeric membranes with a CO2-phillic surface, manufactured as thin films is described. The membranes developed by this approach exhibit outstanding separation performance ...
