Forward osmosis (FO) is gaining increasing interests for its potential applications in biofuel generation. In this study, bench-scale experiments were conducted to investigate the FO performance for microalgae dewatering which is one of the technical challenges in algal biofuel production. The filtration performance was assessed by analyzing permeate water flux and algal biomass concentration in the feed solution. Compared to the active layer facing draw solution (AL-DS) orientation (> 45% flux reduction), active layer facing feed solution (AL-FS) was more efficient (< 15% flux reduction) due to the lower membrane fouling and higher cleaning efficiency (&g...
