Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9832521A1] A method is proposed to recover and concentrate perfluorinated compounds and hydrofluorocarbon gases from effluent gases in manufacturing processes. The method involves contacting the gas with a membrane module equipped with inorganic, molecular sieve membranes and applying a pressure difference across the membrane by compressing the feed gas or applying a vacuum to the permeate or both. The PFC and HFC gases are retained to a very high degree, achieving higher concentrations of PFC and HFC components while reducing the size of or eliminating the need for complementary processes to scavenge the PFC and HFC gases that would otherwise pass through the membrane to the permeate side.
