April Stammtisch - 2D graphene pores for energy efficient gas separation

#Stammtisch #Carbon #Capture #CO2

Last November, the Carbon Capture team presented the technologies being developed at EPFL in this field.

Details of the gas separation will be presented by Luc Bondaz, Doctoral Assistant at EPFL Sion.


50% of the industrial energy consumption is attributed to separation and purification processes. In the context of global warming, energy efficient separation technics are urgently needed. By their simplicity and high energy efficiency, graphene-based processes are highly promising. Due to their scalability and rapid fabrication processes, membranes for gas separation are currently dominated by polymeric membranes. Nevertheless, their performances are limited due to the free volume between polymeric chains, leading to limited performance and thus, hindering their deployment.  By the virtue of their ultimate thinness and tunable nature, 2D graphene pores are highly promising to demonstrate the ultimate gas permeance while manipulation molecular transport to find application in gas separation.
