Among ceramic membranes, zeolite membranes are especially attractive and promising. 5 These membranes are microporous aluminosilicate membranes with a well-defined pore system. 10 Due to the porous structure, zeolite membranes can display much higher fluxes than polymeric membranes, 11 i.e., a much smaller membrane …

The identified membranes – consisting of a polymer support substrate, a zeolite layer, and a polymer cover layer – have high CO2 permeability and CO2/H2 selectivity at 50-180ºC. The selectivity increase is due to the facilitated transport with a higher CO2-amine reaction rate and lower H2 solubility in the membrane as temperature increases.
