Final Report - AQUA SOLIS (Innovative Applications of Solar Trough Concentration for Quality Fresh Water Production and Waste Water Treatment by Solar Distillation)

Project ID: 26350
Funded under: FP6-INCO

Abstract

This is the final report of the AQUASOLIS project, which was thought as a support action for of a larger project (REACT) dedicated to the use of solar concentrating plants for the production of hot water and air conditioning for Southern Mediterranean countries.

The document describes the state of the art for water extraction and stressed the motivation behind the project. The project's objectives are stated and then there is a detailed analysis of the systems used and the experiments conducted, followed by results for each case. Conclusions and recommendations follow.

The AQUASOLIS approach showed the possibility of small size plants usable for small communities where fresh water is a by-product of a multi-purpose approach.
