The primary objective of this project is to significantly advance the development of low-cost membrane materials and architectures that have high hydrogen selectivity, allow high hydrogen fluxes, and resist degradation by syngas-laden contaminants. A second complementary objective 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. This research initiative 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.
