Betase launches two new websites

This summer, Betase has launched two new websites with technical background stories. The website contains technical background stories on membranes and membrane technology in the Dutch and English language. In order to get a good overview of ‘the whole picture’, to raise awareness of this technology, to gain better understanding of their functioning, and […]

Breakthrough in pervaporation membrane for dehydration of solvent streams

After several years of development, researchers at the Universities of Twente and Amsterdam and the Energy research Centre of the Netherlands have succeeded in obtaining a membrane system which is hydrothermally stable under semi-industrial dehydrating conditions at elevated temperature. This organic-inorganic hybrid membrane system combines the best of both worlds: flexibility and water repelling properties […]

Demonstration of innovative water purification system

Betase invests in new technologies. This is illustrated by our participation in 2006 and 2007 in a project to demonstrate how small-scale (surface) water purification can be realised economically and technically using mobile, compact, robust ceramic membrane systems. In this project, partly funded by the Province of Fryslân, we cooperated with membrane manufacturer Hyflux CEPAration, […]

Ceramic membranes for gas separation – Recent developments and state of the art

This article presents the state of the art (2005) of ceramic membranes for gas separation, particularly for the separation of hydrogen from process streams. It includes an overview of recent literature and reveals the best types of membranes for hydrogen separation, with their strong and weak points as well as key players based on patent positions. […]
