Abstract
Recovering valuable resources from wastewater will transform wastewater management from a treatment focused to sustainability focused strategy, and creates the need for new technology development. An innovative treatment concept - osmotic bioelectrochemical system (OsBES), which is based on cooperation between bioelectrochemical systems (BES) and forward osmosis (FO), has been introduced and studied in the past few years. An OsBES can accomplish simultaneous treatment of wastewater and recovery of resources such as nutrient, energy, and water (NEW). The cooperation can be accomplished in either an internal (osmotic microbial fuel cells, OsMFC) or external (micro...
