Looming water scarcity due to the lacking and pollution of water resources is one of the most pervasive global challenges. The use of forward osmosis (FO) for the wastewater treatment has recently gained considerable attention as an alternative to conventional technologies. Compared to traditional pressure driven membrane-based separation, FO process has been acknowledged as a potentially more energy efficient method as FO offers a platform technology that utilizes osmotic pressure difference with high rejections for most solutes. FO has also been touted as a promising option for high water recovery and low cost option for wastewater reuse. This paper presents some aspects of recent progresses of FO for wastewater reclamation. The major focus is placed on the contemporary strategies used in membrane designs and fabrications as well as the efforts made to address membrane fouling. View this paper.
