The Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development of Canada, visited Imtex Membranes today to discuss the need of innovative clean-tech solutions that address the world’s environmental challenges while still creating jobs and economic growth for the country.
Imtex Membranes Corp., Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, is proud to announce its sponsorship of the 30th Ethylene Producers’ Conference that will be held April 22-26, 2018, at the Orlando Marriott World Center in Orlando, Florida. The conference will be held in conjunction with the 2018 American Institute of Chemical Engineers Spring Meeting and 14th Global Congress on Process Safety at the same location. The AIChE Spring Meeting is the year’s key technical conference for practicing chemical engineers. A wide range of subjects relevant to the current needs of industry is covered. Plus, the Global Congress on Process Safety covers the critical needs of process safety practitioners more broadly and deeply than any other conference.
We welcome you to visit the Imtex team throughout the conference at Exhibit Space #8 in the Sabal Room located on Level One of the Orlando Marriott World Center. Imtex business development personnel will be available to introduce you to Permylene™ membrane technology and discuss the benefits that Permylene could bring to your operations within the petrochemical industry. Permylene is a viable, highly modular and economically attractive alternative to traditional high cost, energy intensive processes for olefin/paraffin separation. Permylene is suitable for separating a wide range of C2, C3, and C4 olefin/paraffin mixed gases.

Several articles have been released over recent years highlighting the emergence of new technologies and the impact they will have on the global petrochemicals industry. This latest article ‘Seven chemical separations to change the world’ does well to summarize the significant opportunity and challenges faced by the development of membrane technologies. While the size of the opportunity is driving interest and development, there are naturally several commercialization challenges that lie ahead.
Imtex Membranes Corp. put the spotlight on innovation with their participation at the 29th Ethylene Producers Conference (EPC), held in conjunction with the annual American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) Spring Meetings on March 26-30, in San Antonio, Texas.
The conference served as the epicentre for chemical engineer professionals to engage with a network of ethylene producers, suppliers and potential consumers in varying dialogues that featured white papers, keynote addresses, panel discussions and presentations on a wide range of topics from innovative manufacturing to emerging applications and technology.
As a sponsor at EPC, Imtex facilitated a discussion on innovative membrane technology and how it can be integrated to improve future business operations.
A highlight of the conference was a presentation in the AIChE technical session on Processes of Sustainability by Glenn Towe, the President and CEO of Imtex Membrane Corp, who provided insight into a more sustainable future for olefins production.
The presentation “Permylene™ Membrane Technology - The Cost Effective Alternative to Distillation for Olefin Purification and Extraction” addressed several key concerns to stakeholders and proposed solutions to lower energy consumption,reduce capital costs and mitigate environmental impacts.
Glenn Towe, CEO and President of Imtex Membranes Corp., and University of Waterloo Alumnus, is honoured to be invited to speak to the members of The Society of Petroleum Engineers at the University of Waterloo to present at their Student Energy Conference on 29 October 2016.
We are proud to be sponsors and exhibitors at Asian Downstream Week.
We hope you were able to join us for our presentation and would be pleased to welcome you at our booth, A4, to discuss Imtex's innovative Permylene technology further. We look forward to meeting you.
Join Glenn Towe and Jamie Hughes at the Process & Technology presentation section on Wednesday 28 October at .... where Glenn will present on Permylene, membrane separation technology that revolutionizes olefin extraction and purification for the petrochemical and refining industries.
Imtex Innovative Membrane Technologies invites you to join us at the two upcoming industry conferences:
- the International Refining and Petrochemical Conference, Abu Dhabi, 1-3 June
- the 12th Global Petrochemicals Conference in Dusseldorf, Germany, 9-11 June
We will be introducing Permylene™ with a presentation entitled “Olefin/Paraffin Separation using the Permylene™ Membrane System”, an advanced membrane separation technology providing a high performance, lower cost and the only commercially viable alternative to traditional distillation techniques for olefin purification and extraction.

Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, May 19, 2015
The Permylene Membrane System was a featured technology at the 27th Ethylene Producers Conference that was held April 26-30, 2015, at the Austin Hilton in Austin, Texas. Ali Hamza, Technology Manager for Imtex Membranes Corp. presented the topic “Continuous Olefin/Paraffin Separation with Permylene™ Facilitated Transport Membranes” at the conference that was attended by over 1600 delegates representing major petrochemical manufacturers and engineering companies from around the world.
T he Permylene Membrane System is the first commercially available facilitated transport membrane system that offers a high performance, lower cost alternative to traditional distillation techniques for olefin extraction and purification in the petrochemical and refining industries. Permylene offers significant economic and environmental benefits over the distillation processes typically employed for olefin-paraffin separations.
“The Permylene Membrane System was very well received at the conference,” said Glenn Towe, President and CEO of Imtex. “Imtex was pleased with the overwhelmingly positive response to this revolutionary technology, a technology that has been in development for the last several years. The Permylene Membrane System offers producers of mixed olefin-paraffin streams the opportunity to separate and recover high purity olefins at a significantly reduced capital investment and operating cost versus conventional separation processes.”
Founded in 2007, Imtex is an advanced membrane separation technology company that is focused on the rapid deployment of a patented high performance, reliable and cost-effective membrane technology for the separation of olefins from paraffins and other compounds. Imtex is committed to delivering dramatic improvements in the efficiency, sustainability and cost effectiveness of these important separations to the petrochemical industry.
