CMS announces a new pilot project with Braskem

Compact Membrane Systems, Inc. (CMS), a pioneer in membrane systems for advanced chemical separations, and Braskem America, Inc., an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Braskem S.A., are engaged in the establishment of a joint development agreement. This agreement is for a pilot-scale demonstration of CMS’ proprietary Optiperm™ olefin/paraffin separation technology using a commercial-scale stream of mixed propane and propylene. 
Optiperm™ technology effectively separates olefins, a key building block of the chemicals industry. Optiperm™ is designed for use in petrochemical manufacturing plants and refineries, as a bolt-on technology to capture, separate and upgrade existing streams that would otherwise be lost or under-valued. This novel process technology represents a step change in performance for existing infrastructure. Used in conjunction with existing unit operations, membrane separation systems can increase yield and capacity, lower costs, reduce process bottlenecks, and capture value from existing streams, while operating in a greener, cleaner, and more efficient manner.
The pilot is intended to demonstrate successful operation under field conditions for an extended period of time.
