Solar Desalination in Conjunction with Controlled Environmental Agriculture in Arid Zones

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review

Abstract

There are many factors which favor the juxtaposition of a solar still to a controlled environment agriculture (CEA) greenhouse. A modular, easy on-site construction, low cost solar still was designed and tested. Its annual average daily productivity and efficiency values were 2. 35 l/m**2 and 30% respectively. The feasibility of using the CEA greenhouse's hot brackish water reservoir as the still feedstock for enhanced nocturnal production was tested and found to enhance productivity significantly.
