The monetization of natural gas having high carbon dioxide content (>20mol %) post technological issues and challenges. Carbon Dioxide (CO2) removal unit should be installed at offshore to reduce CO2 content before sending to onshore. It has been found that membrane technology is the best technology for CO2 removal at offshore due to its simplicity, small size and environmental friendly. However, selection of the suitable material for membrane fabrication still a big problem and Many previous research show that Polyetherimide and zeolite 4A have good properties that can be fabricated a membrane that have high efficiency for CO2 removal. The main objective of the current study was to develop Polyetherimide-zeolite 4A mixed matrix membrane. Mixed matrix membrane is the membrane which has polymer as a based and inorganic material as a filter. The membranes were casted using solution casting method. The physicochemical properties were evaluated using FESEM, FTIR, TGA and DSC.
