Main project: CO2 capture with NaCl: An approach based on membrane technology
Funding: FSR
Supervisor(s): Patricia Luis Alconero

In this project, the general objective is to capture CO2 from flue gases and to convert it into a valuable product (Na2CO3) by using NaCl solution as the only material source.
Carbon dioxide (CO2) concentration in the atmosphere is increasing yearly, leading to a global impact in the environment, economy and society. The industry accounts for almost 40% of worldwide CO2 emissions, thus, immediate actions are required. In this context, membrane technology appears as a promising technology to separate gases and to treat waste water for compound recovery. The characteristics, advantages/drawbacks and applications of membrane technology, especially, membrane contactors, will be shown.
As example of this technology, an integrated strategy combining several membrane-based technologies in order to capture CO2 from flue gases from combustion processes will be shown. Besides, this scenario also includes the use of membrane distillation/crystallization to obtain a product (i.e.,salts) that can be reused in the industry as raw material (e.g., ceramic and cement industry).
