Electrodialysis is an industry-ready membrane process used for pollution control, desalination, resource recovery and chemical processing. It can be used to produce potable water from brackish sources and remove salts from foodstuffs, recover salts from effluent, and split salts into their constituent acid and base, for example for recovery of mixed acids from spent pickling liqour.
