The development of materials for pre-combustion processes entails the modification and optimization of the innovative hybrid iPOSS membranes for the separation of H2 from the CO2/CO/CH4 components. In GENESIS, the iPOSS technology will be investigated for H2/CO2 separation from coke gas.
iPOSS carbon capture systems for pre-combustion will be optimized for cost-effective scale-up. The strategy aims at optimizing the iPOSS (polyPOSS-imide) thermal stable membrane layer for high permeances and H2/CO2 selectivity. Special attention will be taken to achieve a defect free layer on the ceramic support.
The unique properties of the thin iPOSS membranes received through interfacial polymerization depends on the alternating connections between the organic bridges and the POSS cages.
In GENESIS, SINTEF designs and synthesizes hybrid organic inorganic nanostructures based on FunzioNano®-POSS, using a patented 2-step procedure developed as a technology platform during the last 20 years. The focus is on synthesis methods that allow a cost-efficient production at large scale.
