A User-friendly And Energy-efficient Device That Generates Clean Drinking Water With The Push Of One Button

Image
Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), U.S., have invented a portable desalination unit, weighing less than 10 kilograms, that can remove salts and impurities from the seawater to generate clean and clear drinking water. Image Credits: Pixabay The portable desalination unit is a suitcase-sized, user-friendly device that requires less power to operate, can be driven by a small portable solar panel and runs with the push of one button. This device generates clean drinking water without using any filters or high-pressure pumps. The water obtained exceeds the World Health Organisation (WHO) quality standards. Unlike other desalination devices, it consumes less energy to discard impurities from water and reduces the long term maintenance requirements. This could enable the device to be deployed in remote areas such as communities on small islands. It could also be used to aid refugees or by soldiers carrying out long-term military operations. “This is really the c
