Understanding Wetting and Rejection in Membrane Distillation for High Recovery Treatment of High-Salinity Streams
Membrane distillation (MD) is a thermally driven process that can be used to extract distillate-quality water from highconcentration streams using waste heat and/or solar thermal energy. To achieve near-100% rejection of solutes, MD relies on an hydrophobic, unwetted membrane. This presentation investigates the long-term (100-day) wetting resistanc...
