Abstract

Forward Osmosis (FO) is a technique that requires less power consumption compared to other membrane techniques. FO is significant for its fouling resistance rate, energy consumption, high recovery rate, water flux and scourable. The FO membrane is fabricated by successive steps namely phase inversion via immersion precipitation followed by interfacial polymerization under suitable parameters. The application of FO in various fields can be enhanced by overcoming the limitations. This study shows the approaches of membrane fabrication for FO technique, applications, advancement in the current industries with limitations and overcoming solutions.
