Carbon Membrane

Research into CO2 technology is receiving increased attention due to the rapid increase in concentration the last 100 years, and the problems that it may cause for our environment. This technology is developed to clean biogas to reach fuel quality, but can be used for virtually any CO2 separation process. The membrane is able to regenerate, i.e. burn off contamination.

DESCRIPTION NTNU researchers have investigated carbon membranes for use in biogas applications. This membrane is composed of carbon made from a novel precursor and configured so that contaminates can be burned off using a small amount of power. The technology developed also includes the manufacturing process.
