Application of Capacitive Deionization (CDI) Technology for Treating the Brackish Ground Water in Dala, Yangon, Myanmar
- The desalination of brackish water is a necessary process due to seawater intrusion and the scarcity of potable water in Dala Township in the Yangon region of Myanmar. The application of capacitive deionization (CDI) was proposed and demonstrated for the desalination of ground water samples from three wells in Dala. During the CDI operation, the ion adsorption characteristics and energy consumption were analyzed. The CDI cell was efficient for the desalination of ground water samples with total dissolved solids (TDSs) of up to 3000 mg/L. Moreover, the energy consumption for the deionization of water samples was about 0.5 kWh/m3 of desalinated water. Therefore, the CDI system could be considered a promising method to address in an energy efficient manner the potable water issue in Dala, Yangon, Myanmar.
