Abstract:

THE ANNUAL U.S. PRODUCTION OF OXYGEN AND NITROGEN IS 20 MILLION TONS EACH. ALMOST ALL OF THESE GASES ARE PRODUCED BYCRYOGENIC FRACTIONATION, A HIGH COST AND ENERGY DEMANDING PROCESS. MEMBRANE SEPARATION FROM AIR IS A POTENTIAL LOW COST ALTERNATIVE PROCESS; HOWEVER, CONVENTIONAL MEMBRANES ARE INSUFFICIENTLY SELECTIVE. WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP CARRIERFACILITATED TRANSPORT MEMBRANES. THE CURRENT FACILITATED TRANSPORT MEMBRANES HAVE THE REQUIRED SELECTIVITY, BUT ARE TOP THICK AND FRAGILE FOR A COMMERCIAL PROCESS. WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP COMPOSITE GEL STRUCTURES INCORPORATING THESE CARRIERS TO SOLVE THIS PROBLEM.
