Design of village-scale photovoltaic-powered electrodialysis desalination systems

- Natasha C Wright

This talk will look at the merits of using electrodialysis for village scale desalination in India as well as discuss the design, analysis, and testing of such a system.  What are the current challenges with bringing this technology to scale in rural India?  Why hasn't this been done already?  Natasha just recently returned from building the first pilot plant in India, with plans to conduct a second Indian pilot and a first Gaza pilot in the coming year.
