Effect of Pressure on Alginate Fouling in Forward Osmosis
The superior fouling resistance of forward osmosis (FO) desalination with respect to reverse osmosis (RO) has prompted debate over the effect of hydraulic pressure. We present a method of isolating the effects of pressure from other differences (e.g., internal concentration polarization) between FO and RO: pressurizing the entire FO module. This me...
