20120417 University Twente – Nieck Benes – Hollow fibre metallic and ceramic membranes

The Membrane Technology Group at Twente has developed hollow fiber metal and ceramic membranes (stainless steel/Pd) by incorporating a polymer matrix on which a thin layer of metal or ceramic membranes is co-casted. Good gas permeability (10-4 – 10-6 mol/(m².Pa.s)) porosity 30-50%. The polymer is removed later, resulting in a relatively strong and flexible metal or ceramic membranes.

Target applications are high capacity gas separation with large area per installation volume, pervaporation, nanofiltration and membrane reactors. http://www.utwente.nl/tnw/im/research/
