This Air Products and Chemicals project will advance ion transport membrane (ITM) technology further towards the ITM Oxygen Development Facility, a 2,000 TPD demonstration-scale test unit. In addition, technical risks will be reduced through economics studies to assess cost and environmental benefits of the ITM system, which is expected to cost 30% less than conventional cryogenic oxygen separation technology.
This project focuses on increasing the efficiency and reducing the capital cost of oxygen (O2) production through development and demonstration of ion transport membrane (ITM) technology. ITM uses mixed ion and electron conducting materials to produce high temperature/high purity O2 at significantly lower capital than state-of-the-art cryogenic O2 production systems. Specifically, this project will demonstrate a pilot-scale ITM O2 production system, and construct a facility capable of producing the complex modules at a commercially relevant rate.
