Edited by Mohammad Reza Rahimpour, Mohammad Amin Makarem and Maryam Meshksar

Publication Date: 26 Oct 2022
Advances in Synthesis Gas: Methods, Technologies and Applications: Syngas Purification and Separation considers different common and novel processes for the purification of produced syngas, such as absorption, adsorption, membrane, cryogenic distillation and particulate separation technologies in addition to thermal and oxidative processes for tar removal. The role of various catalysts or materials in absorption, adsorption and membrane processes are discussed in separate chapters to address each in more detail.

Key Features

  • Introduces various adsorption and absorption techniques for purifying syngas
  • Describes syngas purification by various membranes
  • Discusses novel technologies for syngas purification
