Abstract

Carbon dioxide emissions represent one of the main environmental issue of our time. The greenhouse gases atmospheric loading, due to anthropogenic activities, are causing a continue rise of global temperature. In the field of CO2 capture from gas streams, membrane technologies are promising alternative to the more common operations. Among these, Facilitated Transport Membranes show high performances in terms of CO2 permeabilities and selectivities even at low pressures by coupling a simple solution diffusion transport mechanism and a reversible chemical reaction with a carrier agent. Polyvinyl amine (PVAm) binds one primary amino group for each monomer along the chain, showing high hydrophilicity and affinity to CO2. In this work we use the PC-SAFT [1] Equation of State to model the H2O uptake and the solubility of CO2 in the ternary system of PVAm / H2O / CO2.
