Title (EN) DESALINATION DEVICES AND METHODS
(FR) DISPOSITIFS ET PROCÉDÉS DE DESSALEMENT
Abstract: front page image
(EN) Microbial processes and systems are provided according to the present invention for desalination of saline materials, such as aqueous mixtures including dissolved salts. Microbial desalination devices according to embodiments of the present invention create hydrogen gas in a configuration referred to as a microbial electrolysis desalination cell (MEDC), or electricity in a configuration referred to as a microbial fuel desalination cell (MFDC) in addition to desalination of saline materials.
(FR) L'invention porte sur des procédés et des systèmes microbiens, pour le dessalement de matières salées, telles que des mélanges aqueux contenant des sels en solution. Les dispositifs de dessalement microbiens, selon des modes de réalisation de la présente invention, créent de l'hydrogène gazeux, dans une configuration désignée sous le nom de cellule de dessalement par électrolyse microbienne (MEDC), ou de l'électricité dans une configuration désignée sous le nom de cellule de dessalement à combustible microbien (MFDC), en plus du dessalement de matières salées.
