Scholarcy highlights

  • The principle of electrodialysis desalination was first presented in 1890 by Maigrot and Sabates, and its development into industrial scale started for more than 50 years ago
  • The operation of ED is driven by the development of ion exchange membranes produces high water recovery and does not require phase change, reaction, or chemicals
  • Whilst there are a number of reviews that have attempted to optimise ED performance for various applications, ED technology still has limitations involving scaling, membrane fouling, and permselectivity
  • An extensive review of current studies on the process, principles, and setups of ED technology is given to deliver a comprehensive collection of all the main findings published on this technology so far
  • It provides an overview of the possible sustainability approaches to be integrated with the ED process
  • Mathematical approaches to the design of ED process are briefly mentioned
