Integration of membranes at PACT for industrial testing with real/synthetic flue gases


   Department of Mechanical Engineering


About the Project

A pre-pilot-scale membrane module prototype will be installed for industrial testing at the UKCCSRC PACT) Facilities, integrated with a gas turbine and a solid fuel reactor for coal/biomass to test number of fuels and operating conditions. This focuses specifically on nano-material enhanced membranes for improved CCS applications. The developed pre-pilot membrane modules will be evaluated under a range of different industrially relevant conditions, with a number of different process relevant gases including real and fully synthetic flue gas. This will include flue gas emissions from any power plant operating under any given conditions and with any fuel(s), as well as representative emissions from industrial activities. The operation of the membrane will subsequently allow for extensive performance assessments, ensuring comprehensive characterization of the pilot module. Such testing will enable a wide variety of conditions and thus an array of industrially significant environments to be assessed.
