The aim of this work is to study the valorization of reverse osmosis desalination brines as acid and base by using bipolar membrane electrodialysis process. An experimental lab-scale pilot plant was used where the membranes stack used was PCCell ED 64-004 (PCCell GmbH, Germany). The dimension of the cell is 0.11x0.11m. It is a 4 chamber system with an active membrane area of 0.0064 m2 per membrane. The stack configuration is composed of three cell triplets; each cell triplet has one cationic exc...
