Evaluation of 8040 Forward Osmosis Module

Project Member(s): Shon, H., Phuntsho, S., Vigneswaran, S., Tijing, L.

Funding or Partner Organisation: Woongjin Chemical Co. Ltd. (Woongjin Chemical Co Ltd)

Start year: 2013

Summary: This project will evaluate Woong Chemical's 8040 membrane module. Different oprating parameters in terms of feed properties, draw solution properties, feed flow conditions and draw solution flow conditions will be investigated.
