Water Desalination and Purification

Small and Medium-scale solar desalinators and water purifiers offer a solution for remote and poor communities in dire need of drinking water. We are developing these solar technologies. We recently proved the feasibility of our desalinators at the Universidad Católica del Norte in Chile with the help of two Stanford graduate students.
