New ED aimed at closing industrial water cycles and reducing the amount of waste water streams with highly concentrated salt loads stemming from a broad range of industrial production processes by exploiting the waste components (salts) and transforming them to valuable products. This goal was to be achieved by developing new bipolar membranes for electrodialysis (ED), a new membrane module concept and by integrating this new technology into relevant production processes.

The key feature of the innovative new bipolar membranes is a nano- to micro-porous and at the same time ion conducting intermediate layer, through which water is convectively transported from the side into the transition layer of the membrane. This technique decouples the requirement of the ion-conductive layers to have high selectivity and high water permeability at the same time. It also enables the bipolar membranes to treat highly-concentrated industrial brines by applying higher current densities.

New ED is a Collaborative Project (Grant Agreement number 227004) co-funded by the Research DG of the European Commission within the joint RTD activities of the Environment and NMP Thematic Priorities. The project was performed by a consortium of 6 partners from four countries, coordinated by RWTH Aachen University.
