Abstract: Membrane-based gas separation is increasingly gaining attention as a promising technology in various sectors of the industry. Despite the competitive advantages offered by membranes especially in terms of footprint, capital cost and energy efficiency, further progresses are required in order to well position this technology as a viable alternative to the counterpart established processes. This presentation will showcase our efforts in the identification and exploration of the key approaches and strategies to overcome the shortcomings and to address the challenges that have impeded the widespread application of gas separation membranes. We have developed novel high performance nanocomposite membranes using metal oxide nanoparticles (MgO) embedded in a polyimide matrix. Various techniques were employed for the functionalization of these membranes aiming to enhance the separation efficiency. In addition, we have demonstrated the successful implications of blending high performance polymer
