Abstract

Pollution of groundwater and surface water by nitrates is becoming a common problem for both industrial and developing countries. The concentration of nitrate in many regions in Morocco greatly exceeds the standards for drinking water. Hence, the beneficial or harmful effects of nitrate on human health have been widely studied. The objective of this study is to evaluate the efficiency and the feasibility of the anion exchange membrane: AXE using an electrodialysis pilot plant for the reduction of nitrate ions from groundwater of SidiTaibi (Region of Kenitra) containing a concentration of nitrate in order of 60-120mg/l. The study of the optimisation of the parameters influencing in the efficiency of the anionic membrane exchange, namely: Flow rate, Voltage, Specific energy consumption, Optimization of the recovery rate, Demineralization rate, confirmed the feasibility and the efficiency of
