Energy-efficient electrodialysis cells for the recycling of acids and bases from industrial waste water

In the NovEED project, a novel energy-efficient electrodialysis cell based on a new type of electrodes for internal energy recovery is being developed. The electrodialysis cell will be used for the recycling of acids and bases from industrial process water.
