Abstract

This study provides a literature overview and an investigation of the possibilities of using electrodialysis for removal of copper ions and partial desalination of brackish river water and coal seam gas water. Copper is beneficial as a plant micronutrient in the soil and often deficient. Likewise, many plants and soils can be irrigated with slightly saline water. Therefore, partial removal of copper and sodium chloride is investigated, as well as the possibility to maintain micronutrients in the irrigation solution. Another research question was if an electrolyte solution consisting of sodium sulphate salt aids the removal of copper. The aim of this paper is to investigate methods to produce a custom made water product, suitable for different situations using the example of copper removal. A small preliminary experiment was conducted, and results are shown at the end of the paper.
