Flow-through electrode capacitive desalination (FTECD) uses hierarchical porous carbon in a device where a stream passes through the electrodes, resulting in saltremoval rate improvements. In this rendering, saltwater enters the carbon aerogel electrodes (left) leaving behind sodium (green dots) and chloride (blue dots) ions. Clean water exits on the right.
