    Condensed rotational separation is a new method for separation of gas mixtures. It makes use from preferential condensation of one of the components. But different from separation by distillation columns is that phase change is induced by temperature and pressure reduction through rapid expansion in Joule Thomson valves or turbines. It induces a fine liquid mist which is separated by the patented invention of the rotational particle separator. The process can be extended by subsequent steps of expansion and separation to achieve optimum product quality. The advantage of the process is its low energy consumption and compactness. These advantages pay particularly out in applications of gases under pressure which are frequently met in the oil, gas and coal business: clean-up of sour gas fields contaminated with H2S/CO2, recovery of higher C+ from natural gas, compact LNG production, CO2 removal from Hydrogen production and coal gasification plants, CO2 removal from flue gases to abate greenhouse gas emissions. Since inception of the invention several research and development activities have taken place. We are now at the point of starting field trials and are looking for cooperations.
