New paper published in Desalination on CDI with an aqueous/organic bi-electrolyte

New paper published in Desalination moves our concept of concentration-gradient membrane CDI to a new level: by using an organic electrolyte in one compartment of a 3-channel setup, it is possible to operate the electrode in that compartment at an electrode potential much higher than for an aqueous electrolyte. Thereby, a high desalination capacity of more than 60 mg/g NaCl can be achieved at a stable cell voltage of 2.4 V.
