Imtex's Permylene membrane separation technology revolutionizes olefin extraction and purification for the petrochemical and refining industries. Imtex membrane technology is currently the only commercially viable, high-performance alternative to traditional distillation techniques for olefin-paraffin separation and purification. The technology is also able to perform separations that have, to date, been considered difficult or impractical.

  • Permylene brings significant benefits to the petrochemical industry through the purification and recovery of valuable olefins.
  • Capital expenditures and operating costs are greatly reduced in comparison with conventional distillation.
  • Significant environmental benefits can be achieved through lowering the energy consumption to produce olefins, and by reducing the volume of olefin-containing waste streams sent to flare.
