Who Needs a Watermaker?

Now I just need to find even more space for solar collectors

Interesting article on improving the solar still. The boffins are claiming 1.5gph/m2 for about $100/m2. That means that if you can find 4m2 you can make 6gph (25l/h) while the sun is shining. With no moving parts or electricity. Will be interesting to see how viable it really is.

The paper abstract is here if you want to dig deeper.
