Scientists from Vietnam’s Academy for Water Resources have succeeded in designing an equipment that turns saltwater into freshwater, using the sun’s energy.

The new equipment, which was successfully tested in Cam Ranh Bay in Khanh Hoa province and Do Son district in Hai Phong city, can produce more than 6 litres of fresh water per square meter each day, using solar energy.

The appliance comes in various sizes and can be installed almost anywhere.-VNA
