Development of stand-alone, solar thermally driven and Pv-supplied desalination system based on innovative membrane distillation

Objective

The overall objective of the MEMDIS project is the development of stand-alone desalination systems which are based on the highly innovative membrane distillation technology. The systems integrate solar thermal and PV energy. The desalination energy is supplied entirely by solar thermal solar collectors and the electrical auxiliary energy is supplied by a PV system. Therefore the systems can work as stand-alone systems. Using the membrane distillation technology enables to achieve low-maintenance and durable desalination systems. This is extremely important for stand-alone systems entirely powered by solar energy.
