Electro-diffusion of ions in porous electrodes for capacitive extraction of renewable energy from salinity differences

One dimensional theory of the electro-diffusion of ions in activated carbon porous electrodes is applied to describe the dynamic cycle of the capacitive mixing (CAPMIX) based on the double layer expansion (CDLE) technique to harvest renewable energy from salinity gradients. The model combines the electro-diffusion of ions with adsorption and desorption of… CONTINUE READING
