A Cost-Effective Oxygen Separation System Based on an Open Gradient Magnetic Field by Polymer Beads

Performer: ITN Energy Systems, Inc.

Project No: SC0010151

Project Description

ITN and Texas A&M University will study a lab-scale system for oxygen separation using magnetic fields gradients on polymer coated/encapsulated magnetic nanoparticles by pumping atmospheric air into a multicolumn chamber filled with magnetic nanoparticles coated in a proprietary polymer compound. The project will build and test a lab-scale oxygen separation system, perform computer simulation of magnetic force and magnetic field gradients, process optimization, economic analysis, and explore commercial opportunities.
