Abstract
Consideration is given to the deliberate salinization of domestic wastewater before being drained to the sewer for harnessing energy by pressure retarded osmosis (PRO) process for the self-supply of communal electricity in housing states. The key point, at least from an engineering standpoint, of such a technique is the competition between the price of the salt in comparison with the price of the electricity from the grid. It is shown that with the current prices and trends of the salt in the m...
