Carbon dioxide separation from anaesthetic gases with membrane contactors and biocompatible ionic liquids
March 5-10, 2017
This work aims the development of a self-renewable technology for CO2 separation from anaesthetic gas streams using hollow fiber membrane contactors with biocompatible ionic liquids and carbonic anhydrase (CA) enzyme. Aiming this objective, a system with two hollow-fiber membrane modules is considered, one for the removal of CO2 and the other for the regeneration of the ionic liquid and enzyme. Figure 1 illustrates the proposed concept of this work for an anaesthetic gas closed-circuit.
