REvivED water is a European Union funded innovation project which aims to contribute to overcoming the drinking water challenge by establishing electrodialysis (ED) as the new standard for desalination of seawater. Safe, affordable and cost-competitive drinking water will be produced; with significantly reduced energy consumption compared to state-of-the-art Reverse Osmosis (RO) technology.
Focus will be on the following systems and applications:
Expected results and impact:
Water desalination applications with significant reduction of the energy consumption compared to current state-of-the-art energy technologies.
More cost efficient seawater and brackish-water desalination as well as tap-water softening.
Contribution to the sustainable provision of safe and affordable drinking water all over the world, covering applications ranging from large industrialised plants to small, stand-alone systems for developing countries.
