Abstract

This thesis has made two key contributions, involving material development and numerical modelling, to the field of adsorptive separation of gas mixtures. By developing carbon enhanced zeolite as an adsorbent with significantly enhanced nitrogen and methane adsorption capacities, the experimental results of this work open new doors to synthesis of low-cost high capacity zeolite-based adsorbents with applications in both gas separation and storage. The pressure-induced LJM model, on the other hand, enables process simulations with high-selectivity flexible adsorbents and is a major step forward towards the design of separation processes capable of fully utilising the adsorptive properties of these materials.
