WP2: Gas-solid interfaces Membranes for gas separation and solid oxide fuel cells (Lead: Ian Metcalfe)
This work package will develop new materials for solid membranes for CO2 gas separation and SOFCs. Both rely on efficient oxygen ion transport through the solid membrane separating two gases of different composition.
(a) Visualisation of growth of a CO2 bubble with time in model membrane
(b) SEM plan-view (b) and cross section (c) of epitaxial membrane
- Images of model membrane support structures used for CO2 permeation: (a) laser drilled support, (b) support prepared by phase inversion (c) support with random pore network (pelletisation and sintering of powder).
