The production of materials such as microfibrillated cellulose and cellulose nanocrystals is gathering significant research interest by combining mechanical strength and toughness with a low density, biodegradability and renewability. However, one of the challenges with production on an industrial scale is to obtain an energy-efficient solid liquid separation which is difficult because of the high specific filtration resistance of these materials. This study investigates electroassisted filtration as a method to facilitate the dewatering of cellulosic materials and the influence of ionic strength on the electrofiltration behavior. Electroassisted filtration is found to improve the dewatering rate of the studied cellulosic material, and the potential improvement compared to pressure filtration increased with the specific surface area of the solid material. Increasing the ionic strength of the system increased the power demand of the electroassisted filtration, and the major potential for industrial application is thus for systems with a limited ionic strength.
