Abstract

This chapter details the synthesis and applications of zeolite membranes (gas separation and zeolite membrane reactors). Gas separation is still not carried out at industrial level for zeolite membranes. Related areas, such as the possibility of incorporating a zeolite membrane in a reactor for possible catalytic action of the zeolite particles and scale-up issues are also discussed. The basic concept of mass transport through the zeolite layer has been presented. Zeolites can enhance the selectivity of methane more which can lead to the reduction of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.
