The Desolenator has no moving parts and needs nothing in the way of consumables to work, with each of the solar units apparently good for a 20-year lifespan. It’s basically little more than a big, solar powered kettle, boiling and condensing water on a cycle, and using the steam from one boil to help heat the next.
Desolenator will provide families with the ability to turn salt water and contaminated water into pure drinking water. The technology has the potential to provide water independence for up to a billion people living in coastal and water stressed areas – using the power of the sun alone.
Desolenator maximises the solar radiation that hits the surface area of the system to boil water to get a yield over 15 litres of water per day.
