Ultra-strong polymeric hollow fiber membranes for saline dewatering and desalination

Ultra-strong polymeric hollow fiber membranes for saline dewatering and desalination

Osmotically assisted reverse osmosis can overcome limitations of the reverse osmosis process but a strong membrane which can withstand a high hydraulic pressure is crucial. Here, the authors develop strong polymer thin film composite hollow fiber membranes with exceptionally high hydraulic burst pressures of up to 110 bar, while maintaining high water permeance and salt rejection.
