Title Advanced Nanostructured Molecular Sieves for Energy Efficient Industrial Separations.
Publication Date Dec 2011
Media Count 64p
Personal Author N/A
Abstract The objective of this project is to explore the application of the company's proprietary mesoporous zeolite technology to large-scale, energy-intensive separations in the chemical industry, specifically propane and propylene separation. Rive Technology proposes to achieve these objectives by producing zeolitic materials with different degrees of mesoporosity and testing these materials in a bench-scale unit to generate kinetic and equilibrium separation data. Upon completion of the project, Rive will have demonstrated applicability of the technology in the process with sufficient experimental results and modeling data to interest partners in working with us to translate the technology into commercial use.
