RED Heat-to-Power at the EDS2016 conference
The conference "Desalination and the Environment" in May 2016 in Rome attracted more than 500 attendees including all key stakeholders from the industry and the academia. The RED Heat-to-Power project was well represented with members from 4 partner organisations participating at the conference (UNIPA, CIEMAT, WIP and FUJI). The project partners delivered 4 oral presentations and 2 posters, which describe part of the work carried out within the project over the past year. Below are listed the 6 papers presented:
- Thermal regeneration of ammonium bi-carbonate solutions for closed-loop reverse electrodialysis, M. Bevacqua, G. Plano, P. Montesanto, A. Cipollina*, A. Tamburini, G. Micale (paper 485)
- Multi-physical modelling of Reverse ElectroDialysis, L. Gurreri, F. Santoro, G. Battaglia, A. Cipollina, A. Tamburini, G. Micale*, M. Ciofalo (paper 488)
- Water-organic systems in closed-loop reverse electrodialysis for lower regeneration requirements, F. Giacalone, A. Cipollina*, A. Tamburini, G. Micale (paper 486)
