Carbon Dioxide Desorption from Amine Solution in a Nonporous Membrane Contactor

Long-term testing of a membrane contactor based on a blend of the nonporous polymers polytrimethylsilylpropyne (PTMSP) and polyvinyltrimethylsilane (PVTMS) has been carried out. The flat-sheet membrane contactor has been tested for CO2 desorption from an aqueous methyldiethanolamine solution at 100°C. It has been found that the mass transfer parameters (CO2 flux and stripping efficiency) of the 95%PTMSP/5%PVTMS membrane stabilize after the 7th day of testing. The CO2 mass transfer coefficient in the membrane contactor has been evaluated, and optimal desorption parameters have been determined.
