MOLECULAR SEPARATIONS

TO TRANSFORM THE FUTURE

OF ENERGY, RESOURCES, AND THE GLOBAL CLIMATE

NATURAL GAS & BIOGAS

With high carbon dioxide-to-methane selectivity, Flux Membranes can provide biogas and natural gas producers with a high-recovery, low-capital, energy-efficient method for carbon dioxide capture. 

POWER PLANTS

The single-largest contributor to carbon emissions is electricity generation. Using our high permeability membranes and scalable spiral-wound platform, we believe carbon capture from power plants is achievable and imperative.

HYDROGEN

While hydrogen is does not emit carbon when burned, the steam-methane reforming process for producing hydrogen is carbon intensive. A truly green fuel can be produced through the separation of carbon dioxide from hydrogen.

The purification of olefins is now achieved through an energy-intensive cryogenic distillation process. Flux has shown high-selectivity olefin/paraffin separation membranes that can help purify olefins at a fraction of the energy.

 

FLUX MEMBRANES

Materials

metal–organic framework nanocomposites

At the intersection of inorganic chemistry, polymer science, and chemical engineering, Flux Technology co-founders Dr. Jonathan Bachman, Prof. Jeffrey Long, and Prof. Zachary Smith invented a new nanocomposite architecture that leads to a breakthrough in membrane performance.

This architecture is rationally designed in order to target selectivity and permeability for the purification of carbon dioxide from any gas mixture.

spiral-wound elements

The new membrane materials are converted into Flux Modules. These are large-volume separation devices which maximizes the amount of membrane area. The gas mixture flows into its shell and produces a clean gas stream and a pure carbon dioxide stream.

Flux Modules can be scaled for any size application, from biogas generation to natural gas processing plants, and can be drop-in replacements for existing membrane systems.
