From Wave Power to Clean Water: SAROS

From Wave Power to Clean Water: SAROS

29 Dec 2016

This system could produce 3,500 gallons of clean water per day, at half the cost of current desalination methods, using just the motion of the waves to power the Reverse Osmosis process.

"Engineers Chris Matthews and Justin Sonnett have kept the design of SAROS simple. By using common components, they’re able to place them above water and on shore to avoid complicated installation and maintenance. By concentrating only on fresh water production and not electricity production, SAROS has much higher efficiency. By eliminating energy-related emissions, SAROS’ new design and adaptability provide a unique opportunity to supply clean water, expand the water supply, preserve ecological and environmental needs of communities and address economic issues of energy and water pricing." - SAROS
