Capacitive Deionization (CDI) has over a 95% water recovery rate, does not require water softening, is low maintenance, and purifies at a fraction of the cost of reverse osmosis.
CDI effectively removes most inorganic contaminants that are charged species such as nitrates, ammonia, arsenic, lead, flouride, magnesium, calcium, and total dissolved solids (TDS) or salinity.
CDI can also remove organic contaminants if they have a charge. However, most organic contaminants can be removed by activated carbon filters prior to running through the CDI.
CDI can remove radionuclide contaminants such as alpha particles, beta particles, Radium, and Uranium.
