Award Amount: $100,000.00
 

Abstract:

Membrane reactors have the potential to improve the reactivity and productivity of various chemical syntheses, including enzymatic water sensitive reactions. To be of value, reactors with higher use temperature, improved chemical resistance, and better mass transfer systems are desired. This project will develop improved mass transfer technology for membrane reactors and evaluate its ability to enhance enzyme reactivity. Phase I will fabricate novel membrane modules with improved mass transfer. Once fabricated, testing will be conducted to demonstrate enhanced targeted synthesis and improved mass transfer. Commercial Applications and other Benefits as described by the awardee: This program addresses a broad platform of chemical reactions that can be enhanced by membrane reactors. The enhanced products would comprise well over 5 billion pounds per year and would save over 50 trillion BTU per year. In addition to enhancing chemical reactions, the technology could be used for drying organics, most specifically fuel grade ethanol and pipeline ethanol
