Abstract : This patent discusses a new apparatus and method for desalinating water. The principal impurities in sea water or brackish are in ionic form, which are removed. The energy required to remove the ions may be partially recovered in this process and reused for further desalination, resulting in a further decrease in operating costs. The process consists of creating a space charge layer through the use of porous charged electrodes submerged in the saline solution and thereafter removing the water from the impurity ions.
