Abstract:
A novel sorption enhanced dimethyl ether synthesis (SEDMES) process is presented using a solid adsorbent to remove produced water in situ. SEDMES experiments from feed mixtures of H2, CO, and CO2 have shown an increased yield of DME, an improved selectivity to DME over methanol, and a strongly reduced CO2 content in the product. Consequently, SEDMES will reduce the downstream separation effort and minimise the recycle streams. Within the European Horizon 2020 project FLEDGED, synthesis gas from biomass gasification will be used as feedstock for the separation enhanced DME-synthesis
