Scholarcy highlights

  • This paper evaluates the optimum pressure for a given circuit reverse osmosis system for minimum SEC
  • Energy-efficient desalination technologies are of prime importance due to the continuously increasing global demand for freshwater and its associated carbon footprint
  • We have demonstrated an analytical model of CCRO setup for domestic water desalination
  • If operated with continuously increasing pressure in such a way that the rate of permeation remains constant at an optimum value, the corresponding SEC line with respect to recovery will be parallel and slightly higher than the thermodynamic energy limit line, and the system will be more energy efficient
