Researchers demonstrate concept desalination battery
Green Car Congress
JANUARY 30, 2012
A team from Stanford University and Ruhr-Universität Bochum have demonstrated the novel concept of a “desalination battery” that uses an electrical energy input to extract sodium and chloride ions from seawater and to generate fresh water. However, the battery research community has recently shown increasing interest in aqueous sodium ion batteries for grid scale power storage applications.
