This model is about the CO2 separation using bipolar membrane electrodialysis. Capture and conversion of CO2 from ocean water can lead to net-negative emissions and can provide a carbon source for synthetic fuels and chemical feedstocks at the gigaton per year scale. Here, a model of a direct-coupled, proof-of-concept electrochemical system that uses a bipolar membrane electrodialysis (BPMED) cell and a vapor-fed CO2 reduction (CO2R) cell to capture and convert CO2 from ocean water is presented. The BPMED cell replaces the commonly used water-splitting reaction with one-electron, reversible redox couples at the electrodes. 


**MatLab-SimuLink should be used to run the model.
