High Performance Porous Carbon Accumulators for Energy Support for Complex Hubs Powered by Water Desalination System


The northern coast region of Santa Catarina has companies focused on obtaining inorganic salts from marine water. In addition, regions around the factories of the Moura Storage Group, partner of this Research Group through the ITEMM (Edson Mororó Moura Institute of Technology), such as the Northeast Brazil, have large reserves of brackish water, whose exploitation of Dissolved salts can yield potable water and energy storage systems such as the Battery Energy Store System (BESS), so it can be used whenever and wherever it is needed. It provides cost savings and improved power quality, eliminates pollution from diesel burning in generators and provides energy security. The development of a desalination process from CDI may add selectivity in the extraction of these ions, which would increase the added value of the final product, making it suitable for the specificities of the pharmaceutical and complex chemical synthesis industries, also present in the region, as well as the availability of drinking water in regions such as the salt-rich aquifers of Brejo and Sertão in northeastern Brazil. The success of this project may generate viable products for which intellectual property must be registered through patents involving ITA, IAE, UDESC and ITEMM. In addition, it will provide you with a power storage backup that can support robust data processing systems while making it possible to distribute desalinated water in amounts proportional to the supported systems.
