Analysis of reverse draw and feed solute fluxes in forward osmosis membrane process Analysis of reverse draw and feed solute fluxes in forward osmosis membrane process

A novel method has been developed to determine reverse draw and forward feed solute fluxes in a forward osmosis (FO) membrane, utilising apparent draw (Bd) and feed (Bf) solute permeabilities, for more accurate FO performance analysis.

Review of microbial ecology of denitrification in biological wastewater treatment Review of microbial ecology of denitrification in biological wastewater treatment

This systematic review summarises current findings relating to the microbial ecology of denitrification in biological wastewater treatment processes. It stresses the need to integrate microbial ecology information into conventional denitrification design and operation at full scale.
