A heavy industry company in Chile will utilize electrodialysis reversal technology to recycle its wastewater.

The FlexEDR system, provided by Richmond, B.C.-based Saltworks in partnership with Chile’s VIGAflow, will use Saltworks’ proprietary ion-exchange membranes. The technologies are said to have resilience against organics such as solvents and the ability to perform selective monovalent ion separations such as chloride removal. These features provide cost-optimized treatment for industrial water reuse without complex pretreatment processes, according to Saltworks.
