A Review on Solar Desalination System

Swaraj V. Sakharkar | Amol D. Pitale

Abstract: Desalination is a most promising method to produce potable water. Due to unavailability of fresh water & depletion of fossil fuels, human being move towards renewable sources of energy. In addition, the pollutants released from burning fossil fuels may harm the environment as well as human being. Therefore, instead of conventional desalination system, which uses fuel as a thermal source, solar desalination is the best way to generate potable water. Researchers works on the commercial use of solar desalination system due to limitations of unavailability of solar radiation consistently. Desalination system runs on solar may generate more potable water at low cost. This review presents the various types of solar desalination.
