Performance of Forward Osmosis Using Various Membranes
As a result of water scarcity, increasing demand for freshwater, and energy intensive nature of the conventional desalination processes, advancing the science of desalination is crucial in the development of sustainable ...
Phosphorus and Algae Removal via Adsorption
Algal bloom, commonly known as Red Tide in coastal areas, has become one of the major problems facing desalination plants due to the high biomass concentration of microalgae associated with it. It causes operational problems ...
Modeling Water Flux in Forward Osmosis: Implications for Improved Membrane Design
In efforts to make fresh water available to all people, researchers are dedicated to establish a water treatment method that will reduce the cost of production and impact on the environment. Forward osmosis desalination ...
Produced water treatment using microbial desalination cells
Globally, 250 million barrels of produced water is generated daily for extracting 80 million barrels of oil. Having a highly variable composition and no economic value, produced water presents serious environmental problems. ...
Membrane Bioreactor-Desalination Microbial Fuel Cell Hybrid System
The microbial desalination fuel cell (MDFC) is an emerging desalination technology offering great promise of high salinity removal with zero energy input. Moreover, the membrane bioreactor (MBR) is of great reliability in ...
