The membrane research programs have widespread actions both on basic membrane material development, as well as membrane gas separation processes. The main concentration of the research is CO2 detention by membranes (from flue gas, natural gas sweetening, biogas upgrading) and hydrogen retrieval from various mixed gas streams. Along with these energy focused gas applications, there is also current research on membranes for chlorine separation. The membrane materials to be considered are of various types of polymers, nano-composites, carbon membranes, and modified glass membranes.
