Pervaporation using ceramic HybSi® membranes can deliver a 30 to 50 percent energy savings relative to conventional distillation. Particularly striking is that this ceramic membrane can be used up to a temperature of 150°C , while the maximum temperature for polymeric membranes is around 100°C. As a result, ceramic membranes enable a fourfold increase in throughput, thereby cutting the cost of materials up to 75 percent. That means the proper application and use of ceramic HybSi® membranes for pervaporation offers significant advantages, as demonstrated by a recently completed ISPT/NL GUTS techno project.
