Ionic Liquid Membrane Process for Removal of Volatile Organic Compounds from Lab to Industrial Scale
Hybrid processes have received more attention in pollutant removal due to the combination of advantages of each process. A membrane combined with absorption was developed and studied for the removal of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from lab to industrial scale. The ionic liquid membrane containing 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium bis(trifluoromethyl sulfonyl)imide ([Bmim][NTf 2 ]) showed competitive absorption on toluene. An industrial-length ionic liquid membrane was investigated under optimized conditions based on lab-scale results for a long time. The arrangement of the membrane modules was also evaluated, including connection in series and parallel. As a result, the proposed ionic liquid membrane is highly promising for industrial applications.
