Lead organization:

Imtex Membranes Corp.

Description:

Imtex has developed Permylene, a membrane technology capable of separating two high value hydrocarbon gas streams (olefins and parrafins). This separation technology can eliminate the incumbent process, cryogenic distillation, which is costly and energy intensive. Imtex will demonstrate the technology at the Bio-Industrial Park in Sarnia, Ontario.
