Ceramic membranes can be used for the separation of single gases from gas mixtures or in membrane reactors. Ceramic membrane reactors (CMR) offer an opportunity to combine separation processes directly with chemical reactions, leading to process intensification and, hence, benefits with regard to efficiency. This integral coupling of both processes, separation and reaction, generates synergies between them. Current research activities focus on membrane reactors due to their high intrinsic efficiency and great potential for the production of a large variety of commodity chemicals, energy carriers, and synthetic fuels. This chapter gives an overview about the ceramic membranes, their function, and their potential application.
