ASCE Releases New Book

Forward Osmosis examines solutions for clean drinking water

The American Society of Civil Engineers’ (ASCE) new book, Forward Osmosis: Fundamentals and Applications, examines solutions to easily and efficiently produce clean drinking water. It presents the principles and implementation challenges of low-energy desalination technology for producing potable and non-potable water.

Written by leading experts, the book describes the basic concept of forward osmosis (FO) technology and discusses modeling and element design. The editors explore different draw solutions and assess recently developed FO membranes. Forward Osmosis is a reference for water and environmental engineering practitioners, as well as environmental managers, government officials and students.
