Iranian Researchers Produce Nano-Adsorbents for Purifying Natural Gas

Tuesday, December 8, 2015 - 12:27

Researchers at Tarbiat Modares University have produced lab-scale porous nano-adsorbents in order to purify gas mixtures and remove carbon dioxide from natural gas.

According to Iranian Students' News Agency (ISNA), the results indicate that the nano-adsorbents produced in this study are extremely effective in increasing the purity of natural gas.

The gas extracted from gas wells usually contain many impurities, such as carbon dioxide (CO2) and hydrogen sulfide (H2S). The presence of CO2 in natural gas may reduce its thermal capacity and therefore its fuel efficiency. As a consequence, purifying natural gas has always been of primary importance to the relevant industries.

Seyyed Mohammad Hosein Harati, the executor of the project, has declared that “although our main target was to separate CO2 from methane, the results showed that the produced nano-adsorbents can also be useful in purifying the natural gas.

“The product is of particular importance to petrochemical industries, because of its high efficiency and low cost”, added Harati.

The abovementioned study also serves as Harati’s doctoral dissertation. The project is backed by Iran Petro Tech Institute and Iran’s National Nanotechnology Council.
