Evaluation of Reverse Osmosis Membrane Performance Indicators for Desalination in a Changing WorldPublic
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
The United Arab Emirates is one of the largest producers of desalinated water in the world. Reverse osmosis is a growing desalination technology being implemented worldwide. As the populations increase and urbanization continues, it is expected that seawater quality will be affected through rises in temperature, increase in salinity, and presence of human-derived contaminants, like particulate material. Through literature review and experimental study, implications of increasing salinity, temperature, and TiO2 on reverse osmosis performance indicators were explored in this work. The increase of salinity was found to have the most notable effect in amount of permeate the reverse osmosis membrane could produce.
