Consortium to advance membrane technology for reduced carbon capture costs


GTI, The Ohio State University, Wyoming Integrated Test Centre (ITC), and Trimeric will advance Ohio State’s transformational membrane technology to provide reductions in CO2 capture cost and energy penalties.

Recently selected for a financial award, the project team will fabricate the membrane and membrane modules, design and build an engineering-scale CO2 capture system, conduct tests on coal flue gas, and gather data for further process scale-up.

The US Department of Energy National Energy Technology Laboratory (DOE-NETL) is expected to provide $13m in funding for the $16.25m project, with partners contributing the additional financial support.

Titled Engineering Scale Design and Testing of Transformational Membrane Technology for CO2 Capture, the project seeks to achieve DOE’s carbon capture performance goal of CO2 capture with 95% CO2 purity at a cost of $30/tonne or less.
