Solar water distillation is relatively old technology for water purification compared to the latest ones. But it is one of the efficient ways that allow access to clean water to people. A solar water distiller uses solar energy that can separate salt or brackish into fresh drinking water through the method of reverse osmosis. Unlike other methods of water purification, this technology is simple and energy efficient to use, making it a cheaper alternative to clean drinking water. Solar water distillation process includes the use of solar still that separates clean water ...
