Kenya Installs The First Solar Plant That Transforms Ocean Water Into Drinking Water

(Humans Are Free)  The Earth is a watery place. In fact, 71 percent of our planet is covered in water [1]. Despite this, one in nine people do not have access to safe drinking water – that’s around 785 million people [2].

The trouble is, 96.5 percent of all Earth’s water is found in the oceans in the form of saline water, and is not drinkable for humans. That only leaves us with rivers, lakes, and groundwater to satisfy our water needs [1].

According to the World Economic Forum, the global water crisis ranks as the number four risk in terms of impact on society [3]. Let’s face it – humans need water to survive. →

Nearly 97% of all the water on earth is salt water. The typical process to remove salt is by boiling the water and capturing the steam. Desalination is expensive and energy intensive. Presently, there are more than 18,000 desalination plants across 150 countries.

New federally funded research reveals a method of purifying water by using solar power. The research, titled “Nanophotonics-enabled solar membrane distillation for off-grid water purification” was published this month in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences journal…
