Curtin university researchers have developed membrane to separate from air using a ceramic ion transport membrane

Oxygen can be separated from air using a ceramic ion transport membrane, a device permeable only to oxygen. Commercial efforts to use this technology in oxygen production and other applications have so far failed due to insufficient rates of oxygen transport, or flux. Researchers at Curtin University have developed a uniquely structured ceramic ion transport membrane for oxygen separation that shows remarkably high flux. The membrane employs a multitude of microchannels extending into the dep...
