Membrane technology has always been crucial to water purification process, but it could become the core element of energy generating system using salinity gradient. Reverse electrodialysis (RED) is one of the sustainable methods for capturing energy from seawater, which generates power via the transport of the positive and negative ions in the water through selective ion exchange membranes. This work presents the power performance of various types of ion exchange membranes including commercial and custom-made using artificial seawater and waste brine as their energy source.
