MATERIALS: When PoroGen Corp., a leader in the development of high-temperature porous polymeric materials, was developing its proprietary PEEK-SEP membrane technology for the separation of liquids and gases, it chose Victrex plc’s VICTREX® PEEKTM high-performance polymer because of its combination of high temperature and chemical resistance. The innovative PEEK-SEP line of hollow fiber membranes and devices are designed for use in the most demanding separation applications. PoroGen’s technology is based on melt extruded porous polyetheretherketone membranes. Membranes made with VICTREX® PEEKTM can operate at temperatures as high as 200C (392F) and are not affected by aggressive chemicals present in “real-life” process streams.
Researchers have been working on a number of alternative chemistries to lithium-ion for next-gen batteries, silicon-air among them. However, while the technology has been viewed as promising and cost-effective, to date researchers haven’t managed to develop a battery of this chemistry with a viable running time -- until now.
