The United States and most of the world is pushing to significantly reduce carbon emissions, with many countries intent on fostering carbon negative energy processes to offset ozone depletion and climate changes. 30% of the U.S. greenhouse gas emissions are generated from the combustion of fossil fuels to generate electricity1. Current commercial IGCC carbon capture processes employ a capital and operating cost intensive water-gas shift reaction facilitated by a high temperature reactor followed by a low temperature reactor and an amine absorber to separate the hydrogen and carbon dioxide streams to capture the carbon. Dr. Jerry Y.S. and his laboratory at Arizona State have developed a hydrogen permselective MFI type ZSM-5 zeolite membrane reactor that effectively facilities the water gas shift reaction with high conversion and separates the CO2 and H2 streams during reaction to generate ultrapure retentate and permeate streams. The membrane, formed by secondary free growth, is synthesized on an ultrapure a-alumina membrane support currently purchased from an outside vendor. The purpose of this study was to design an α-alumina support processing plant with capability to supply one full-scale commercial reactor annually with membranes. The design yielded a DCFRoR of 71% for a 20-year project life. A zeolite membrane processing material balance was conducted using alumina support as the raw material. The study showed very low material costs and consumption rates for all materials except a gas used to refine the membrane after processing. The results of both studies were favorable enough to suggest further study.
