Turkish researcher awarded grant to study electrodeionization for biofuels

June 20, 2017 |

In Arkansas, a Turkish researcher has been awarded an AAUW International Doctoral Fellowship from the American Association of University Women in part to research use of electrodeionization, or EDI, which uses electricity to remove ions from water. In addition to other areas, she is studying the use of EDI in the process of growing algae for biofuels. In this project, researchers use EDI to convert carbon dioxide into bicarbonate. The bicarbonate will help create an ideal environment for growing algae, which can be used to create biofuels.
