|An Overview of High-temperature Ceramic-carbonate Dual-phase Membranes for CO2 Capture and Conversion
|On-Site Speaker (Planned)
Direct capture of greenhouse gas CO2 at point sources such as power plants and subsequent conversion of the captured CO2 into valuable products is a viable solution to mitigate global warming and close the carbon cycle. In recent years, a new class of high-temperature ceramic-carbonate dual-phase (CCDP) membranes has emerged. Since the CCDP membranes operate at elevated temperature (500-700oC), it can utilize the process heat in the hot flue gas, thus offering the opportunity to capture and convert CO2 into valuable products in one step. Here in this presentation, we overview the recent development of CCDP membranes and demonstrate the design and results of a number of combined CO2 capture and conversion reactors developed in the presenter’s laboratory.
