Petrochemical – Olefin/Paraffin Separation
The most difficult separations to achieve in the petrochemical industry are the separations of olefins from their corresponding paraffin – such as ethylene from ethane and propylene from propane. Cryogenic distillation, an extremely energy intensive unit operation, has traditionally been used for this task. Imtex’s patented olefin/paraffin membrane separation technology has been shown to cut energy costs and GHG emissions by 30% to 90%, with significantly lower capital costs. These are the types of impacts that the chemical industry has long sought after and all the more recently with the current economic and environmental concerns.
     
Chemical Recovery
Imtex has applications for alcohol-water separation or solvent recovery and recycling. Membranes can be deployed in pervaporation or perstraction modes.
  Oxygen Concentration
This technology increases the concentration of the oxygen content in the air, used in industrial combustion, automotive engines and medical breathing apparatus technology.
