Small Scale Water Distillation video

Richard Freudenberger instructs this workshop where we look at water distillation and various designs such as passive solar, DIY stovetop options, and examine the differences between water distillation, filtration, and purification. A solar water distiller uses 100% renewable energy to clean and purify contaminated or
saline water. The sun’s energy heats and evaporates water, creating a vapor that rises
in an enclosure and then condenses back into water to be collected as it cools. Non-
solar distillers work in much the same way using an outside heat source, but there are
some differences. The distillation process leaves behind impurities such as salts, heavy
metals, and arsenic, and eliminates microbiological organisms.
