European Team Develop Solar-Powered, Low-Cost Desalination System
Posted August 04, 2012 4:27 PM
Many countries in the Middle East have been researching desalination - the process of removing salt from sea water so it is fit to drink. It makes sense especially in hot, dry countries where drinking water is not abundant. However, a team of European researchers from CORDIS believe they can make the entire process even more efficient, by harnessing the region's high levels of solar power to develop a high-efficiency and low-cost desalination system.
