Forward Osmosis

Concentration, evaporation and filtration are everyday operations to many within the food and agricultural industries. However, as we increase our focus on sustainability, energy usage and waste recovery and utilisation, they are likely to everyday in many new areas of the industry where their usage today is rare.

Whilst these tasks have been completed using Reverse Osmosis technologies for many years, recent changes in energy costs have opened the door for researchers to re-examine the benefits of Forward Osmosis processes.
