Nature Meets Technology: Forward Osmosis Membrane Technology. In Helix-Nielsen, C (Ed.), Biomimetic Membranes for Sensor and Separation Applications, p. 21-42. Dordrecht: Springer, 2012 How to Cite?
AbstractBiomimetic membranes may find a potential application in forward osmosis due to its capability of mimicking the highly-selective transmission of water or solutes through natural cell membranes and the gentle operating conditions of the forward osmosis process. The integration of these novel technologies for desalination may significantly reduce the energy consumption when compared to the reverse osmosis desalination technique. To further understand the process, this chapter presents fundamental concepts of forward osmosis, FO membrane characteristics, draw solute properties, as well as potential applications of FO processes.
