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. Hollow fibre ceramic membrane technology at CEPAration is also presented.

The article was written in a co-operation with CEPAration BV (Helmond), Alstom Energy Systems (Kassel, Germany) en Kösters Process Engineering Consultants PEC (The Netherlands).
