Electrodialysis

Electrodialysis (ED) is used to transport salt ions from one solution through ion-exchange membranes to another solution under the influence of an applied electric potential difference. This is done in a configuration called an electrodialysis cell. The cell consists of a feed (diluate) compartment and a concentrate (brine) compartment formed by a...

electrodialysis

Dialysis is a concentration-driven membrane process that helps remove very small particles (ions or molecules) from solutions. If electrical voltage is used, it is called electrodialysis. The process has been used since the 1960s for the desalination of seawater. Subject to conditions, the procedure may be applied within the EU at the winemaking be...
