solar ocean water to pure water distillery

This design uses the power of the sun to boil water creating steam (pure h2o) then uses the steam to drive an engine that pumps ocean water into the still. The steam can be collected when it condenses and be used for drinking, watering crops or washing. The remaining salt can be sold for a profit. This machine only works during sunlight hours so it automatically cleans itself at dusk. A typical installation could be used to turn desert countries into a fertile oasis. For example: If we built one in Saudi Arabia it could flood the empty quarter radically improving the ecology of the middle east. Imagine pumping thousands of gallons of freshwater into that desert…

An alternative design could use long black pipes centered at the focal point of a mirrored “half pipe” parabolic reflector.
