(PDF 264.9 kb)
The objective of the CARENA project is to accelerate the introduction of membrane reactors into the European chemical industry by the development of novel material and processes for the conversions of alkanes and CO2 into valuable chemicals. In a future environment with higher cost of crude oil and of CO2, the European chemical industry can only remain competitive by radical innovation. Process intensification is a key innovation area identified by the European Platform for Sustainable Chemistry (SusChem) for a more sustainable European industry. A consortium of mayor EU chemical companies, research institutes and universities will develop new membrane based approaches to convert un-reactive alkanes to functionalized chemicals.
