Abstract

This project encompases research for designing, building, and stationing a solar powered desalination system in Mboro, Senegal. While water is one of the most important substances on earth, Senegal, like many other developing countries, is unable to provide potable water to their citizens all at once. Currently, supplying energy and clean water can be logistically complex and, in the face of limited water resources, creating efficient methods for achieving purity has proven to be equally difficult. I have decided to explore whether or not solar powered desalination is a plausible solution to Senegal’s water crisis. This research includes defining desalination, assessing the pros and cons of solar power, corresponding with Senegalese officials and citizens, and the beginning stages of designing and building the system. With the success of the system, I plan to build a small sustainable facility in Mboro, Senegal that will function as its home.
