Lithium is a chemical element found in minerals and natural water, and it is the lightest metal and has a number of interesting uses including the key element in lithium rechargeable battery devices or in medicine to treat certain illnesses or long-term mood disorders. This thesis investigates a ceramic-based, efficient lithium ion separation membrane based on inorganic lithium ion conductors. This membrane-based lithium separation using an electrodialysis system has shown great potential to lead to an economic process for lithium recovery due to the low chemical demand and high selectivity.
