Ion Concentration Polarization (ICP) is an emerging desalination technology developed by the Han Group of MIT Research Laboratory of Electronics. ICP desalination has significant benefits over conventional desalination technologies, and subsequently, may be well equipped for the creation of a portable desalination unit. Portable desalination units have applications in disaster relief and providing drinking water to remote regions of developing nations without established water infrastructure. In this thesis, the viability of a portable desalination unit based upon ICP is assessed. A number of different system modifications, both theoretical and experimental, are proposed to increase the propensity of ICP to meet the needs of such a portable system.
