Borate-Containing Membranes for Gas Separation
TS-032351 — Highly efficient membranes that can facilitate effective carbon dioxide capture that can be used to purify industrial gases such as natural gas, syngas, and hydrogen
Membranes are a cost-effective and energy-efficient solution for the separation of carbon dioxide from methane and industrial flue gas. In addition, membranes are utilized to purify hydrogen and syngas. Increased global utilization of natural gas has necessitated efficient natural gas purification…

Economical Two-Stage Membrane Process for CO2 Capture from Flue Gas of Power Plants
TS-015275 — A portfolio of technologies and methods for CO2 capture that does not require complex or prohibitively large components.
There has been growing concern about global warming since the CO2 concentration in the atmosphere has surpassed 400 ppm in the past decade. The combustion of fossil fuels is one of the major contributors to the large amount of CO2 emission, and membrane technologies have been suggested as a promis…

Polyvinylamine/Amino acid Salt Membranes for CO2 Separation
TS-015274 — A novel method for synthesizing polyvinylamine/amino acid salt membranes with increased stability, CO2 permeance, and CO2 selectivity
Facilitated transport membranes utilize fixed carriers, such as Polyvinylamine (PVAm), and mobile carriers to provide high CO2 permeance and maintain a high CO2/N2 selectivity compared to solution-diffusion membranes. Current production methods of commercial PVAm introduce many problems that can d…
