Abstract:To enhance the seawater desalination energy efficiency forward osmosis-reverse osmosis (FO-RO) hybrid system has recently been developed. In this process, the FO "pre-treatment" step is designed to dilute the seawater (SW) with reclaimed wastewater (WW) before the desalination step, thereby reducing the energy demand for the SWRO process. However, membrane fouling is a major issue that needs to be addressed. Proper selection of suitable WWs is necessary before proceeding with largescale FO-RO desalination plan…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
