In this chapter carbon dioxide (CO2) separation from power plant flue gases through membranes will be discussed. The performances of membrane systems (permeation characteristics, stability, and so on) will be discussed with particular attention to the membrane materials available and membrane modules. An example of membrane design for integration in power plants will be given. Even though membrane systems are not yet applied industrially for such separation, the advances in the field make ...
