Project Description

This research is an integrated effort that encompasses material design, process evaluation, and material assessment to develop technologies that will effectively and efficiently utilize syngas while promoting carbon capture. The objective of this task is to make significant advances towards developing low cost membrane materials and architectures that have high hydrogen selectivity, allow high hydrogen fluxes, and resist degradation by syngas-laden contaminants. A second goal of this task is to provide a design basis for a robust hydrogen separation module that employs low cost membrane materials, and architectures that deliver high hydrogen selectivity, high hydrogen fluxes, and resistance to degradation by common syngas contaminants. The objectives of are to make significant advances towards developing low cost membrane materials and architectures that have high hydrogen selectivity, allow high hydrogen fluxes, and resist degradation by syngas-laden contaminants and to provide a design basis for a robust hydrogen separation module that employs low cost membrane materials, and architectures that deliver high hydrogen selectivity, high hydrogen fluxes, and resistance to degradation by common syngas contaminants.

Project Benefits

This NETL Office of Research and Development (ORD) project will evaluate various configurations of process models for methane-to-benzene conversions. The impact of this project will be to develop a cost-effective gasification-based CBTL process to produce renewable liquid fuels that will provide diversity of fuel supply and energy security while resulting in lower future capital and operating costs. Specifically this project will collect laboratory data to validate the models developed for the process.
