Forward osmosis for sustainable water treatment

Abstract:

Forward osmosis (FO) as an emerging technology has been researched extensively over the past few decades for water treatment and other applications. In FO, the water in the feed solution (at low osmotic pressure) spontaneously flows through a semipermeable membrane to the draw solution (at high osmotic pressure) under the osmotic pressure difference and without applied hydraulic pressure, conferring the advantages of low energy consumption in the separation process and reduced membrane fo...
