Flyers

HybSi® pervaporation tool - Pervatool: a modeling tool for PV process design

Pervaporation is the selective evaporation of one of the components of a liquid mixture using a membrane. Up to now no suitable unit operation for pervaporation is available in process simulation tools like Aspen Plus. ECN's Pervatool solves this and can now be added to your Aspen Plus process library >>.

HybSi® pervaporation membranes

HybSi® is the trade name of a recently developed nanoporous membrane system with an unprecedented high stability under both hydrothermal and acidic conditions. The membrane material unites organic and ceramic parts, and the best of both worlds are combined in this true hybrid material. >>

Pervaporation with HybSi® membranes

In close collaboration with the interested clients ECN assesses the suitability of HybSi® membranes and confirm this by small scale lab tests. An on-site pilot test would be a logical continuation for the successful cases. For this purpose ECN has a complete demo skid unit available. >>
