UBE CO2 Separator for Biogas Upgrading

Less waste for the earth, more energy for the future.
UBE membranes GREENIZE us.

UBE membranes have been working in many fields for over 35 years.

UBE started its basic research into materials for gas separation membranes in 1978, and we joined a Japanese national project aimed at developing a new chemosynthesis process and contributed our gas separation technology to it.
UBE installed the first membranes for hydrogen recovery, which were launched on the basis of our extensive research, in oil refinery plant for mass production in 1986.
UBE extended its line-up of membranes and applications and installed the first UBE CO2 Separator for purifying biogas in 1989. UBE is continually improving the superior performance of its membranes.

Biogas is a RENEWABLE energy produced mainly from organic residues which can be energy crops, plant by-products, animal by-products, biowaste from households, etc., mainly comprising CH4 and CO2. UBE’s CO2 Separator purifies the biogas, converting it into Biomethane (CH4) and efficiently collecting CO2.

UBE CO2 Separator has superior productivity, selectivity & durability.

UBE has extensive knowledge in polymer chemistry as a chemical company with long history, UBE infuses its CO2 separator with our latest polyimide technologies and produces from a monomer for polymerizing polyimide as the fiber membrane material.

Features

Biomethane purified up to 99,5%
High selectivity, biomethane recovery up to 99,8%
Compact < Reduced amount of membranes
Low energy consumption

How it works

Structure of UBE CO2 Separator

UBE CO2 Separator contains hollow fiber membranes. When compressed biogas flows into the hollow fibers, molecules with higher permeability rates for the membranes, such as CO2, H2O, O2, and H2S, pass through the membranes earlier than gases with lower permeability rates, such as CH4. The result of the differences in permeability rates is that highly purified CH4 is obtained after passing through UBE CO2 Separator.

Efficient Biogas Upgrading to Biomethane
