Abstract: In this work, the performance of a new porous medium, polyurethane (PU) foam in a fixed bed reactor for carbon dioxide separation from fuel gas mixture using the hydrate based gas separation process is evaluated. The kinetics of hydrate formation in the presence of 2.5 mol % propane as thermodynamic promoter was investigated at 4.5, 5.5, and 6.0 MPa and 274.2 K. Significantly higher gas consumption and water conversion to hydrate was achieved when PU foam was employed. PU foam as a porous medium can help convert 54% of water to hydrate in two hours of hydrate formation. In addition the induction times were very low (
