Two hydrodynamic and mass transfer models are presented which the researchers propose can be used to scale nenbrane performance up the plant level. Using these models, a comparison of the overall plant and membrane performances can be made based in terms of net power produced and membrane costs. The models also predict that it is technically feasible for PRO to produce energy using hollow fiber membranes. The importance of pretreatment is highlighted.
