“Advanced MEMBranes and membrane assisted procEsses for pre- and post-combustion CO2 captuRe” (co-financed by European Commission Horizon 2020 programme)

MEMBER is a project co-financed by the European Commission (GA n°760944) within the frame of the Horizon 2020 programme (Call: H2020-NMBP-2016-2017). This project is currently ongoing (start date: January 2018 – end date: January 2022). The key objective of the project is the production and replicability of both advanced materials and new technologies (membranes and sorbents) to be used in power plants for pre- and post-combustion CO2 capture and for the production of H2 with integrated CO2 capture.

Based on its know-how on the recycling treatment of end-of-life Pd-Ag membranes (which was acquired in a previous national project, HYRPAM), Eco Recycling will focus its activity on:

  • Lab test on samples of membranes (produced within the MEMBER project by Tecnalia) in order to define the optimized parameters to perform the recycling of target components;
  • Pilot plant test on a prototype in order to validate the lab procedure also in a bigger scale.

The project involves also an analysis of the recovered support after the recycling treatment in order to assess the process’ efficiency. New membranes will be manufactured on these supports and their properties will be measured and compared with the original ones.
