Advanced Sorbent Development and Scaleup

Overview PNNL has both batch and continuous processing technologies for producing test quantities of new advanced sorbent materials, including advanced zeolites and custom MOF (Metal Organic Framework) compositions. PNNL’s capabilities also include the associated compositional and performance characterization equipment for wide range of gases and vapors. PNNL has licensed a continuous particle growth technology for sorbent scale-up technology to Innaventure LLC, whose business is focused on providing industrial quantities of advanced sorbents.Another continuous system that has been developed is based on using microfluidic cells produced with photolithographic manufacturing, leveraging the capabilities in PNNL’s EMSL user facility.
