A knowledge-based company has successfully designed an electrodialysis system for desalination that can meet part of Iran’s needs for drinking water.
Given the declining rainfall, growing population and the rising industrial demand for water worldwide, desalination is the best option for countries with access to seawater. Nevertheless, the process is expensive and consumes a great deal of energy, the news portal of the Vice-Presidency for Science and Technology reported.
However, with the design of an electrodialysis process, which consumes less energy, the Payamavaran Nanotechnology Fardanegar Company has been able to provide a cost-effective solution using nanotechnology for desalination.
The process uses an electrochemical technique, whereby contaminants are removed from the aqueous solution using anionic and cationic membranes with the help of an electric current.
