Fiber Supported Ionic Liquid Sorbents
National Energy Technology Laboratory, Pennsylvania, United States
Ionic liquids, liquid organic salts at room temperature, are transformed into high surface area fiber material that can filter out impurities like CO2, sulfur, and water from gas mixtures, paving the way for cheaper and more efficient gas separation in areas like natural gas reforming, carbon capture, and chemical manufacturing.
Primary Application Area: Conventional Energy
Technology Development Status: Concept
Technology Readiness Level: TRL 3
FIGURES OF MERIT
Value Proposition: The novel fiber production method reduces fabrication steps, provides more rapid fabrication, prevents loss of the ionic liquid and provides a high surface-to-volume ratio to enhance adsorption performance and reduce cost in either cyclic sorption/desorption cycles or in a membrane configuration.
