Contents:
Salinity gradient power is the energy created from the difference in salt concentration between two fluids, commonly fresh and salt water. There are two technologies for which demonstration projects are running and both use membranes. Pressure Retarded Osmosis (PRO) uses a membrane to separate a concentrated salt solution (like sea water) from freshwater. The freshwater flows through a semipermeable membrane towards the sea water, which increases the pressure within the seawater chamber. A turbine is spun as the pressure is compensated and electricity is generated. Reversed Electro Dialysis (RED) uses the transport of (salt) ions through membranes. RED consists of a stack of alternating cathode and anode exchanging permselective membranes.
