  • CO2 permeation with Pebax®-based membranes - for global warming reduction;
  • reducing CO2 emissions to atmosphere - issues worldwide;
  • greenhouse gas storage - in empty gas fields and aquifers;
  • membrane-based CO2 separation - lack of commercial membranes with high permeability and high selectivity;
  • polymer membrane materials, involving solution-diffusion mechanism;
  • upper bound relationship, permeability and selectivity - overcome with facilitated transport membranes;
  • gas sorption measurements;
  • thermal behaviour studies by DSC (Differential Scanning Calorimetry);
  • Pebax® 1657 membrane - modified by cold plasma;
  • poly(ethylene oxide-co-epichlorhydrine) (PEGEPI)
