Abstract:

The scarcity of water is a major problem in the large part of the world. The problem is so severe that many countries are fighting to solve the problem of potable water and many people are even becoming the victims of the deceases because of intake of impure water. The purification of water is energy intensive process. Solar distillation is attractive alternative as it uses solar energy. It is also easy in construction, simple in operation, has low maintenance and operating cost. Solar stills are easy to construct, can be done by local people from locally available materials, simple in operation by unskilled personnel, no hard maintenance requirements and almost no operation cost. But they have the disadvantages of high initial cost, large land requirement for installation and have output dependent on the available solar radiation. If there is no sunshine, the productivity is almost zero for conventional basin type model. However, from the simplest basin type models of solar still in earlier days, researchers have progressed a lot to increase its efficiency.
