Membranes And Catalysts Beyond Economic and Technological Hurdles

Project description

New generation of catalytic membrane reactors for high-volume industrial applications

Catalytic membrane reactors combine two processes of chemical reaction and membrane-based product separation in one step. Application of this technology for large-scale industrial production has the potential to increase resource and energy efficiency while decreasing greenhouse gas emissions by up to 45 %, capital expenditure by up to 50 % and operational expenditure by up to 80 %. The goal of the EU-funded MACBETH project of an international consortium is to validate industrial applicability of this technology through the long-term operation of demo plants for the large-scale processes of hydroformylation, hydrogen production and propane dehydrogenation at technology readiness level 7. In addition, the consortium aims to achieve extension goals transferring this technology to biotech application for the selective enzymatic cleavage of fatty acids and also to create a spin-off company 'Lighthouse Catalytic Membrane Reactors'.
