Air Products wins for low cost oxygen production


Air Products’ ion transport membrane (ITM) technology has won a Technology Transfer Award by the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI).

The award was presented at a recent ceremony held in New Orleans, Louisiana and acknowledges the highest annual achievements. EPRI acknowledged Air Products’ ‘Ion Transport Membrane for Lower-Cost Oxygen Production.

“We are honoured to have been presented an award by EPRI, recognising the advancement that ITM technology offers the energy industry. We believe ITM oxygen technology will play a role in advancing coal-based clean power generation both in today’s power market, and also in the anticipated carbon-constrained environment of the future.”

According to Air Products, the company’s patented ITM oxygen production technology offers several benefits. It increases efficiency, whilst also reducing the costs of advanced coal-fired power plants. The device harnesses ceramic material, which, once under pressure and temperature, ionizes and separates oxygen molecules from air. Most crucially, it does so without any external electrical power.
