Catalytic Membrane Synthesis

Scientist in lab.
Reducing cost by combining separation and reaction into tubular catalytic membrane systems


Catalytic membrane systems developed at Oak Ridge National Laboratory are based on flexible, commercially viable inorganic membrane technology (metallic and/or ceramic) with deposited catalytic nanoparticles or surface coatings. These catalytic materials include zeolites, perovskites, metal carbides and nitrides, and metals/alloys. This scalable platform is capable of operating under high temperature, high pressure, and corrosive conditions and can be fabricated in tubular architectures, making it an ideal membrane reactor system for both thermochemical and biochemical biomass conversion applications.
