The aim of the project was to develop and make available robust and cost effective inorganic membrane technology for large-scale separation of methanol and/or ethanol from other organics in the (petro) chemical industry. This has been done by membrane development and testing, development of membrane transport models, process specific testing and process development, design of modules and test installations and pilot scale testing. Finally a technical and economic evaluation was made.
