Project: Polymeric and Hybrid Membranes for CO2 Conversion Electrolysers

Academic lead: Professor Andrew Whittaker
The University of Queensland

Advanced electrolysers require membrane materials for separation and selective transport of gases and ionic species. The physical and chemical properties of the membranes must be carefully tuned to achieve optimal performance in the demanding environment of the electrolyser. In this project two classes of polymeric membrane will be developed; ion exchange membranes as electrode separators, and CO2 selective membranes for control of input gas composition. The projects will involve polymer synthesis, characterisation and testing in prototype electrolysers developed by the GETCO2 team.
