Modelling the effect of the porous support on the flux through asymmetric oxygen gas separation membranes
July 3-8, 2016
Oxygen Transport Membranes (OTM) represent a new technology for energy-efficient oxygen generation which can be used in low-pollutant power plants and oxygen generators or membrane reactors in the chemical industry and health care. The two competing demands of low ionic resistance of the functional separation membrane and high mechanical stability lead to an asymmetric design comprising of a thin membrane layer and a thicker porous support. However, the overall membrane performance is strongly affected by the microstructure of this support layer which prevented the use of the full potential of such a design in the past.
