Desolenator uses thermal and electrical energy to remove salt from water.
Desolenator is a mobile solar-powered desalination unit that uses solar power for heat exchange, which in turn produces clean water. The product will be available for market sale in modular components to allow for various capacity requirements.
Desolenator has received aid from the Indian Government, Ukaid, World Bank, and USAID, although it is unclear which organizations will assist with distribution.
Desolenator has not set a price point yet, but a previous prototype was likely to go to market for about 1,000 USD per unit. However, the design has since then adapted and a current price is unavailable.

Is there safe water storage integrated into this product?
The Desolenator is a solar panel that converts sunlight into electricity while also using the heat to boil contaminated water. Water flows into the boiler and is converted to steam. The stream flows through a cool tube that converts it back to water. The system outputs clean water and waste through separate outlets.
