Polymeric membranes are mainly used today for CO2 capture by membrane technology to produce clean fuel from a gas mixture (from coal gasification or steam reforming processes). Furthermore, gas separation using polymeric membranes is commercially available; nevertheless, CO2 capture in large-scale power production by means of polymeric membranes still presents an inadequate performance owing to their lack of high-temperature stability. CO2 capture using membranes is an ongoing ...
