Abstract: Hydrogen energy offers many unique advantages and is becoming a promising alternative and renewable energy source. In the major industrial hydrogen production process, carbon dioxide is the main byproduct in the leaving stream and should be captured for effective hydrogen usage and environmental concerns. Membrane based separation technologies show the advantages of less energy deduction, more environmental friendly and smaller footprint of the operation unit. Zeolitic imidazolate frameworks/ polybenzimidazole nanocomposite materials have been developed for high efficiency membrane based hydrogen purification. The resultant membranes show high thermal stability, good dispersion of nanoparticles and attractive gas separation performances at elevated temperatures. This membrane material possesses great potential to be scaled up for industrial productions of asymmetric hollow fibers and flat-sheet membranes for hydrogen production and carbon dioxide capture in industrial applications under harsh and extreme environments.
