Cleaner solvents for sustainable chemistry

INTERACT Project - Advanced Membrane Technology VII Conference

Advanced Membrane Technology VII Conference, 11-16 September 2016 Cork, Ireland.

A communication entitled « Novel CO2 capture membranes based on polymerized ionic liquids and polymeric porous supports » will be presented by Marius Sandru (SINTEF, NORWAY). SINTEF is a partner of Solvionic in the frame of the INTERACT project (FP7, n°608535).

Highly CO2 selective membranes and innovative process designs for CO2 capture can compete with absorption due to relatively low energy consumption and small foot print. Novel materials poly(ionic liquids) (PILs) are combined with membrane separation for CO2 capture. For a variety of ILs and PILs, the CO2 sorption is significantly higher than either CH4 and N2 due to Lewis acide-base interactions between the CO2 and nitrogen-containing groups.
