FERRO SPAIN has been awarded with the prestigious “Alfa de Oro” for a project based on the formulation of water based catalytic inkjet inks and their application on advanced ceramics. In collaboration with KERIONICS and Instituto de Tecnología Química (ITQ) it has been obtained ceramic membranes able to selectively separate oxygen from air. The digital application of the membrane catalytic layers by inkjet allows taking advantage of the multiple benefits of this technology, highlighting the improvement in the device performance, as a consequence of its high resolution and the possibility of non-planar substrates covering, and the process automation in an environmentally friendly environment.
The Project results have a dual benefit in the ceramic sector, since KERIONICS possesses the technological development necessary to fabricate ceramic membrane modules and to integrate them in highly energetic industrial processes, such as oxycombustion, allowing onsite oxygen production on demand.
