Final report project results related to high temperature oxygen generation

The investigation of high temperature oxygen generation materials was carried out as combined effort within the EU project ENCAP (SP5) and CATO. The research was performed in close cooperation with BOC, Linde, Statoil, Sintef and the University Twente. This report focuses on the results that can be related to the Dutch interest.

In the period March 2004-August 2005, TNO Science and Industry (S&I) was active in the development of new high temperature oxygen generation materials and the performance-stability relationship properties of oxygen sorption materials (CAR (Ceramic Auto thermal Recovery)-process materials) and membrane materials at relevant process conditions. In September 2005 the partners of SP5 selected the CAR process as the most promising process and the research was focussed on only high temperature oxygen generation materials for the CAR process.
