Jeffrey Long said: "Electrodialysis is a known method for doing desalination, and here we are doing it in a way that incorporates these new particles in the membrane material and captures targeted toxic ions or neutral solutes, like boron," "So, while you are driving ions through this membrane, you are also decontaminating the water for, say, mercury. But these membranes can also be highly selective for removing other metals, like copper and iron, at high capacity" External link

Jeffrey Long said: "This would be especially useful for those areas that have low levels of contaminants that are still toxic at these low levels, as well as different wastewater sites that have lots of types of toxic ions in their streams," External link

Jeffrey Long added: "It is a technology where, depending on what your toxic impurities are, you could customize the membrane to deal with that type of water," "You may have problems with lead, say, in Michigan, or iron and arsenic in Bangladesh. So, you target the membranes for specific contaminated water sources. These materials really knock it down to often immeasurable levels" External link

academictimes Saturday, April 17, 2021 1:00:00 AM CEST
