At a time when potable water, fossil fuels, and wood fuels are increasingly scarce, it is more
important than ever to develop methods of purifying water with renewable energy resources.
This report compares the benefits and drawbacks of various models of solar powered water
pasteurizers and solar powered stills. A flow diagram is proposed for a solar powered distillation
system which utilizes phase change material energy storage to extend its productive time.
