Solar distillation is a relatively simple treatment of brackish or Sea (i.e. contain
dissolved salts) water supplies. Distillation is one of many processes that can
be used for water purification and can use any heating source
Solar energy is a low tech option. In this process, water is evaporated; using the
energy of the sun then the vapor condenses as pure water. This process removes salts
and other impurities.
Solar distillation is used to produce drinking water or to produce pure water for,
Restaurants Hotels, laboratories and hospitals. Since the output water has less
than 20 TDS, it is require adding minerals for drinking purpose.
