Nowadays, chemical industries produce high amounts of concentrated effluents and/or aqueous solutions rich in heavy metals or rare-earth elements. Then, industries wanted to reduce the concentration of these streams or valorize these elements[1]. For this reason, in this work we propose the use of a new electrodialysis-based technology, named selectrodialysis (SED), in order to reduce the effluent concentration, separate monovalent from divalent ions, and at the same time concentrate them in ord...
