Membrane reactors for oxidative coupling of methane to produce syngas and other chemicals

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Oxygen permeable membranes have been attracting much attention for a variety of applications, such as oxidative coupling of methane. This article describes the concept of oxygen-permeable membranes based on mixed oxide-ion and electronic conductors and trend in material development. To date, perovskite-type oxides and dual-phase-type membranes showing an oxygen permeation rate of approximately 10 mol/cm2s (13.4 sccm/cm2) under methane reforming have been developed. In addition, a prototype of planar-type methane reformer using the ceramic membranes has been developed. Methane can be reformed to syngas under dry and low steam/carbon conditions by using the membrane reformer.
