About Capacitive Deionization

Capacitive Deionization (CDI) technology is a revolutionary method of desalinating brackish (saline) water.

Fresh potable water is becoming much more difficult to obtain from groundwater and surface water sources throughout many parts of the world. The arid regions of the Western United States are already depleting their groundwater supplies because surface water rights are completely committed, and population growth of the affected area is expected to increase significantly in the next 25 years. The Middle East and Africa are currently experiencing serious shortages of potable water, and population growth may rapidly make the problem more serious. However, there are reserves of brackish water that could be used to ease these supply problems. With the advent and development of CDI technology, these reserves could be exploited.

CDI works by attracting ions and other charged particles within the water to electrodes of opposite charge. This is designed to effectively and efficiently remove these ionized species from the water stream, thereby producing fresh, potable water. The process is more cost-effective to operate compared to other desalination methods such as reverse osmosis and distillation. Also, the modular design of the CDI system will allow it to be used for residential applications or scaled-up for commercial use. Its versatility also extends into wastewater treatment and any applications where pure water is a necessity, such as laboratories and industrial processes.
