  • Introduction

  • The growing energy demand combined with increasing concerns about greenhouse gas emissions is driving the research towards the development of processes with integrated CO2 capture.

  • In this research a hybrid silica membrane is developed to be used in a water gas shift membrane reactor, enabling pre-combustion carbon capture.

  • Membrane preparation

  • A metal doped hybrid silica sol was prepared by co-condensation of 1,2-bis(triethoxysilyl)ethane (BTESE) with a zirconium precursor.

  • Hybrid silica membranes were prepared by dip‑coating a diluted sol onto a γ-alumina membrane. The membranes were calcined at 400 °C in nitrogen atmosphere.

  • Results

  • A monomodal particle size distribution with an average particle size of 5 nm was obtained for the zirconium doped BTESE sol.

  • Nitrogen adsorption on unsupported membrane materials shows a densification effect upon doping with zirconium.

  • By varying the dip sol concentration a maximum H2/CO2 selectivity of 12 is obtained for Zr‑BTESE with a dip sol concentration of 0.2 mol/L.

  • Acknowlegdement

  • We acknowledge financial support for this research from ADEM, A green Deal in Energy Materials of the Ministry of Economic Affairs of The Netherlands (www.adem-innovationlab.nl).
