Recovery of valuable polymeric solutions by lowering the salinity using electrodialysis

Desalination technologies that extract water seem prohibited when polymers and/or surfactants are present. Electrodialysis (ED), a technology that extract salts from the treated solution, is often proposed as a cost effective method to desalinate organic-rich waste streams. An promising application of ED is the treatment of produced water from enhanced oil recovery (EOR)
