- This paper firstly diagnoses the current status of membrane-based desalination technologies, ranging from the membrane physical properties to the efficiency of membrane modules.
- Subsequently, the authors of this paper suggest the development of high-pressure reverse osmosis (HPRO) process to researchers out there, and they assert that the corresponding process can enable the energy-efficient hypersaline desalination and mitigate the current brine discharge practices.
- The authors are finalizing the current paper by proposing the further level of HPRO research.
