Cyclic membrane gas separation processes

Abstract : This study deals with a systematic investigation of the performance of cyclic membrane gas separation processes. First, a state of the art of membrane separation processes, including material challenges and mass transfer modeling issues is proposed. In a second step, a review of the different theoretical and experimental studies performed on cyclic processes is reported. With respect to the length of the high pressure stage and its fraction in one cycle, these operations are classified into short and long classes. Based on this classification, a systematic analysis of the potential interest of short class compared to steady-state operation performances has been achieved by means of numerical simulation and optimization. In order to improve the performance, the use of MMM in such a process has been further discussed. In parallel with the short class study, a design of novel long class has been proposed. Spectacular advantages with respect to classical membrane-based processes have been highlighted by means of our simulation and optimization studies. Finally, an experimental verification has been performed in order to provide a solid support to this novel process
