Whey desalination by electrodialysis

Hoeting, W.A.G.

Food Technology in New Zealand 7(3): 10-13


The development of whey desalination by TNO (Netherlands Organization for Industrial Research) from triple-cell units to multi-cell electrodialysis units using anion- and cation-permeable membranes is described. An outline is given of cell pack sizes and electric current efficiencies for 8-h batch electrodialysis of 25% TS whey at <50 degrees C.
