Abstract
There are new remote deep-water oil fields that are being discovered and this makes the use of shuttle tankers more vital for the transport of crude oil to on shore and off shore refineries. The emissions from these tankers are studied and an alternative technology for the recovery of methane, propane and butane from carbon dioxide and other inert gases that are present in the emission is being explored by the use of membrane technology. This paper looks into the transport mechanism exhibited by an inorganic ceramic membrane with an – Al2O3 support. The –Al2O3 support showed permeance in the range of 10-5 mols-1m-2Pa-1 for CO2, Ar, N2 and He at 298 K.
