in which the composition at the feed-membrane interface differs from the composition in the bulk of the feed mixture. This gradient in composition is generated by the separation performed by the membrane and, as such, cannot be avoided. However, it is important to minimize the effects of concentration polarization because the gradient in composition reduces the separation performance of the membrane and increases the potential for membrane fouling.

Solar Panel Basics

Global warming is a huge problem which will significantly affect every country in the world. Many people all over the world are trying to do whatever they can to help combat the effects of global warming. One of the ways that people can fight global warming is to reduce their dependence on non-renewable energy sources like oil and petroleum based products.
