With water scarcity at an all-time high, there is an increasing need to recover water from saline sources. Utilizing the power of the sun can provide a sustainable way to produce clean water. ESW-SLO is creating a distillation system to work in conjunction with a concentrating solar mirror to produce clean and sustainable water from seawater. The focus of our research is creating a distillation system that will increase the efficiency in which energy from the sun is used.
