In membrane distillation, a heated saline liquid stream is allowed to vaporize through a hydrophobic porous membrane. Vacuum membrane distillation (VMD) is a variation on this process in which the driving pressure difference is increased by lowering the pressure on the vapor side of the membrane. The heat of vaporization is recovered in an external condenser. This process has been applied to the desalination of seawater. However, energy recovery is limited by the saturation temperature of the… CONTINUE READING
