HYDRO5 is a nature-inspired low-cost desalination system based on the principles of evaporation and condensation. Seawater and brine from the existing desalination plant will be treated in a 200m2 “Mangrove Greenhouse” to produce clean water via evaporation and condensation, edible salt and tropical fruits. The design of the Mangrove Still system and the Saltwater Evaporation Greenhouse were completed by the first half year of the project.
