Novel pre-combustion power production: membrane Reactors

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademicpeer-review


It is well known that conversion of fossil fuels for power production leads to an enormous amount of greenhouse gas emissions widely accepted as responsible for climate change. As fossil fuels will remain the primary energy source for the next decades, different studies are ongoing to make the conversion of fossil fuels more sustainable. A way to avoid CO2 emission in the atmosphere when using fossil fuels for power production is the so-called pre-combustion CO2 capture or decarbonization route. In this chapter, this capture option will be explained and in particular the possibility to use process intensification through membrane reactors will be explained.
