Forward Osmosis : A New Approach to Water Purification and Desalination

  title={Forward Osmosis : A New Approach to Water Purification and Desalination},
  author={James E. Miller and Lindsey R. Evans},
Fresh, potable water is an essential human need and thus looming water shortages threaten the world’s peace and prosperity. Waste water, brackish water, and seawater have great potential to fill the coming requirements. Unfortunately, the ability to exploit these resources is currently limited in many parts of the world by both the cost of the energy and the investment in equipment required for purification/desalination. Forward (or direct) osmosis is an emerging process for dewatering aqueous… CONTINUE READING
