Summary on Grant Application Form
Innovative solutions are required to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from energy production processes. Here we propose to fabricate mixed ionic and electronic conducting membranes using innovative methods to produce novel membrane structures. Such membranes will be capable of conducting both oxygen-ions and electrons. Under reaction conditions methane will be fed to one side of the membrane and air to the other. Ionic oxygen transport across the membrane will result in methane combustion. The advantage of such a membrane is that the fuel exhaust stream is kept separate from the combustion air exhaust stream allowing for carbon dioxide recovery followed by possible recycle or sequestration.
