Functional ceramic hollow fibre membranes for catalytic membrane reactors and solid oxide fuel cells

Z.T. Wu, M.H.D. Othman, B.F.K. Kingsbury and K. Li,     Imperial College London, UK

Abstract:

This chapter introduces major developments and use of functional ceramic hollow fibre membranes, that is a membrane design consisting of a dense outer layer for separation supported on a highly porous inner catalytic substrate layer, for energy utilization in methane conversion and micro-tubular solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs). The advantages of the dual-layer hollow fibre membrane design and the single-step co-extrusion and co-sintering process employed to achieve this membrane design are addressed. The key factors that affect the fabrication and ...
