Catalytic membranes for efficient combustion

Posted by Miguel from Universidad de ZaragozaResponsive · Knowhow and Research output · Spain

Summary of the technology

Flow-through catalytic membranes offer lower combustion temperature than conventional packed bed catalytic reactors. This technology could be employed to clean air from VOCs or to achieve efficient combustion of fuels.

Description of the technology

Examples of applications can be seen in the following articles:

-The Knudsen-diffusion catalytic membrane reactor: An efficient contactor for the combustion of volatile organic compounds” M.P.Pina , M. Menéndez, J. Santamaría. Appl. Catal. B: 11, L19-L27 (1996)

- “Combustion of Volatile Organic Compounds over Platinum-based Catalytic Membranes”, M.P. Pina, S.Irusta, M.Menéndez, J.Santamaria, R.Hughes, N. Boag. Ind. Eng. Chem. Res., 36, 4557-4566 (1997)

- “Catalytic combustion of volatile organic compounds over La-based perovskites”. S.Irusta, M.P.Pina, M. Menéndez, J. Santamaría. J. Catal., 179, 400-412 (1998)

- “Development and application of perovskite-based catalytic membrane reactors” S. Irusta, M.P. Pina, M. Menéndez, J. Santamaria, Catal. Letters, 54, 69-78 (1998)
