Cost Effective Kaolinite-based Porous Ceramic Supports with High Permeability and Mechanical Strength
National University of Singapore, Singapore, Singapore
This technology relates to a mechanically stable (10 MPa) and highly permeable Darcy's permeability of ~1.5E-013 m2) porous ceramic matrix, made using kaolinite doped with a small quantity of another element. This technique is also applicable to the fabrication of planar porous ceramic membrane or panels.
Primary Application Area: Materials & Chemical
Technology Development Status: Prototype
Technology Readiness Level: TRL 3
FIGURES OF MERIT
Value Proposition: By dopeing raw kaolinite powder, this technology is able to make use of kaolinite in a process to fabricate a porous ceramic with good mechanical strength and permeability, making it suitable to be used for liquid filtration. It can potentially be used to replace existing ceramic membranes.
