Energy and clean water are high on the agenda around the globe. Capacitive Deionization (CDI) is a recent, promising and efficient technique by which brackish water may be desalinated to produce potable water. The process is based upon the fact that when a saline solution is allowed to pass between two electrically charged active carbon electrodes, the cations are attracted to the negatively charged electrode into the electric double layer, while the anions are similarly attracted to the positively charged anode, thereby freeing the water from its salts, and producing salt-free water.
DESCRIPTION OF YOUR ORGANISATION:
The Partnership for Research and Innovation in the Mediterranean Area will devise new R&I approaches to improve water availability and sustainable agriculture production in a region heavily distressed by climate change, urbanisation and population growth
The PRIMA programme is an Art.185 initiative supported and funded under Horizon 2020, the European Union’s Framework Programme for Research and Innovation.
