Electrodialysis Reversal Treatment Applications

DESALT Electrodialysis Reversal (EDR) has a wide range of applications in various industries and can provide a cost-effective and environmentally friendly solution for water treatment and product purification.

Chemical Factory Wastewater Treatment Plant

This advanced treatment system is designed to treat wastewater from chemical factories using Electrodialysis Reversal technology.

DESALT EDR treatment plant utilizes a unique process that separates the ions and impurities in wastewater using an electric current, resulting in clean and safe water.


Electrodialysis for wastewater treatment removes up to 99% of impurities from the wastewater, making it safe for reuse or discharge.

Seawater and Brackish Water Desalination

Electrodialysis Reversal can effectively remove a wide range of ions and impurities from seawater and brackish water, including salts, nitrates, and other dissolved solids. The process can also remove some organic compounds and certain metals.


Electrodialysis Reverse can be particularly effective for treating brackish water with a low to moderate salinity level, typically up to 10,000 parts per million (ppm).

Chemical Industry Product Concentration

Electrodialysis reversal in combination with bipolar membranes or with ion-exchange resins has found a large number of applications in the chemical process industry, especially for chemical products concentrations.

Lithium Recovery and Extraction from Solutions

Electrodialysis Reversal is a simple and efficient process to separate and recover lithium from various resources while allowing to reduce chemical reagent consumption and reducing the global environmental impact of lithium production.

Lithium extraction can be performed with the use of highly-selective membrane toward lithium by means of monovalent ion-selective electrodialysis membranes.

RO Reject and Brine Concentration

The brine that is generated during the RO process has a high salt concentration and cannot be directly discharged into the environment. This brine can be further concentrated by Electrodialysis Reversal and water can be extracted from it.

Typical salt concentrations from the EDR process brine can reach salinity levels up to 300,000ppm.

Power Plant Feed Water Purification

Electrodialysis Reversal processes can be used for purifying feed water in power plants.


Feed water is the water that is used to create steam, which in turn is used to generate electricity. The purity of feed water is important because impurities in the water can cause corrosion, scaling, and other problems in the power plant equipment.

EDR is the perfect solution for this kind of water treatment application.

Water Desalination for Metal Surface Treatment Factory

Electrodialysis reversal (EDR) can be an effective technology for treating wastewater generated by metal surface treatment factories. These factories typically use large amounts of water to rinse and clean metal parts, which can result in high levels of dissolved metals and salts in the wastewater, posing a serious threat to the environment.


In this application, Electrodialysis Reversal can be a cost-effective and efficient solution for treating wastewater generated by metal surface treatment factories, helping to cut disposal costs and conserve water resources.

Factory Wastewater Treatment Plant

Electrodialysis Reversal can effectively remove a wide range of contaminants from factory wastewater, including heavy metals, organic compounds, and salts.


The electrodialysis process can also be combined with other treatment technologies, such as reverse osmosis treatment, to achieve higher levels of purification and recovery.

Metal Surface and Coating Wastewater Treatment

Electrodialysis reversal (EDR) process can be used to treat water for metal surface treatment factories. These factories often use water in their processes, and this water can become contaminated with metals and other impurities.


Treating this wastewater can be done by electrodialysis reversal to protect the environment and comply with regulations.
