New Classes of Membranes Developed for Gas Separations to Bolster MEA Membrane Separation Systems
Polymer is the most widely used membrane material for gas separation.Polymers are the suitable choice of membranes as they can be processed into hollow fibers with high surface areas.
The relatively low cost of manufacturing fibers makes them acceptable for large-scale industrial applications.Examples of such membranes are the MEDAL and PRISM membranes produced by Air Liquide and Air Products for a wide range of gas separation applications.
Polymeric gas separation membranes have become competent over the past few decades. These membranes are currently used in industries for hydrogen separation, e.g., hydrogen/nitrogen separation in ammonia plants and hydrogen/hydrocarbon separation in petrochemical applications. Moreover, various new membranes such as thermally rearranged polymers, intrinsic microporosity polymers, room-temperature ionic liquids, perfluoro polymers, and mixed matrix membranes with high separation performance are developed for gas separations. Mixed matrix membranes (MMMs) are the new hybrid composite membranes in which the inorganic nano or micro-sized particles are homogeneously integrated into the polymer matrix. Therefore, the growing trend of new class of membranes is expected to drive the MEA membrane separation systems market .
MEA Membrane Separation Systems Market Overview
The MEA membrane separation systems market is segmented into South Africa, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, and the Rest of MEA.South Africa held the largest share of the regional market in 2022.
The growing population and rising economy have increased water consumption and wastewater discharge.Industrial end users are increasingly using membrane technology to manage their wastewater streams.
South Africa’s limited sources of surface water and changing weather patterns are driving up water prices, which are making it vital for industrial water users to find effective ways to treat wastewater.Industrial companies are also moving toward wastewater recycling, driving the demand for membrane technology.
A significant rise in spending on water-related schemes and projects would accelerate the growth of the wastewater treatment chemicals market in South Africa during the forecast period.
