From polymer design to highly added value product application: In BIOCOMEM project new membranes for CO2 separation starting from new biopolymers with improved functionalities are being developed.

Quotes from project leader

“There are many ways to make green gains in pursuit of a bio-based economy; moving to bio-based membranes for separation can make a major contribution.”

“Chemical separation techniques use 10-15 percent of global energy consumption; switching to a membrane-based approach can reduce this dramatically.”
