Membraneassisted Batch Reactor

The membrane-assisted batch reactor is most frequently considered for implementation because it requires the smallest process modification from traditional catalytic reactors. In this configuration, a membrane unit is added in the recycle line of a batch reactor. In so doing, the membrane has the capacity to selectively remove a product component or to selectively add a reactant. It has the advantage of allowing the pressure or temperature of the membrane and reactor unit to be controlled independently. Therefore, the properties of the membrane can be varied to optimize the separation achieved.

Membrane-assisted configurations suffer from the inability to remove product components completely as they are produced. This limits the conversion to values that are lower than those that are theoretically possible in the other configurations considered.

Global warming is a huge problem which will significantly affect every country in the world. Many people all over the world are trying to do whatever they can to help combat the effects of global warming. One of the ways that people can fight global warming is to reduce their dependence on non-renewable energy sources like oil and petroleum based products.
