Presentation of the participants of the TUM DeSal Challenge 2016

Team leader:
Desalination technology: Solar evaporation with a parabolic trough collector
All team members are students from the technical university of Munich in their first semester. What we can‘t reach through experience we compensate through motivation and effort.
Our desalination plant is specialised for the use in warm developing countries as it works with the power of the sun and is easy to handle. Through a well-balanced relation between expenses and effects we try to make our construction as affordable as possible, so less wealthy costumers still can get access to it.

The system of our desalination plant is based on condensation through solar energy. To increase the temperature of the water we use circular mirrors to concentrate the sunlight . To cool the water-steam the incoming sea water is used as coolant. By a smart placement of all components we try to make it as efficient as possible.
