A novel idea for the conversion of low-temperature heat into electricity is based on the generationof electricity from salinity gradients using a Reverse Electrodialysis (RED) device in a closed-loopsystem. In this concept a limited amount of artificial saline solutions can be used as the workingfluids in a closed-loop. The solutions exiting from the RED unit are then regenerated, in order torestore the original salinity gradient, by means of a separation step, which uses low-temperatureheat (40-100°C) as its energy source. A theoretical analysis of potentials of this technology is illustrated in the present work.
