Solar Water technology generates unlimited fresh water through an innovative, carbon neutral and completely sustainable technology. Unlike current desalination solutions it does not rely on any fossil fuels or harm ocean life by dumping salt back into the sea.
Desalination facilities based on technology that mirrors the natural hydrological cycle process: evaporation, condensation and precipitation, with only the sun as the energy source.
The technology involves a dome – a hydrological sphere – constructed from glass and steel into which sea water flows. The energy generated to super heat the continuous inflow of water and to create a constant water cycle within the dome – the equivalent of up to 20,000 suns – produced by focusing concentrating solar radiation, from a large number of parabolic mirrors (heliostats) surrounding the domes, onto the glass and super conductive steel frame structure. Through this process, the sea water evaporates, condenses and is precipitated as fresh water. The brine gathers at the bottom of the dome’s basin, is extracted and sold commercially.
