CECRI has developed the membrane cell technology based on Nafion membrane, catalytic anode and cathode developed by this institute. This paper discusses the effect of the configuration of electrode base, like perforated, expanded, or finger type and current conductors of baffle, box, channel type etc. The flow pattern of the electrolyte, the effect of multipoint feed on concentration profiles, temperature and hold up volume are some of the important factors considered in this paper. Based on the pilot plant scale (6.0 kA current rating) a power consumption of 2200-2250 kWh/tonne of caustic soda was obtained
