Technologies for Short-Term Applications 23 The above are extremely large-scale RO projects and primarily use seawater as the source water. However, there are other, land-based commercial units that the military has been using during HA/DR missions for fresh or brackish or even seawater sources. com) is one such company that has been supplying units to the military for HA/DR use. 2). The unit requires 1500 W of power and can operate on AC and DC power sources. 2 (psi) pressure. Besides the prefiltration unit(s), it comes with an activated carbon postfiltration unit to remove taste and odor problems.

2 USE OF SOLAR COOKERS FOR DRINKING WATER PRODUCTION There is a widely disseminated body of knowledge and literature on the subject of solar cooking and solar cookers, and several international conferences have been held on this subject in the past 20 years; proceedings of these conferences have been archived by Solar Cookers, International (Sacramento, CA). Because many foods are cooked in the range of 80-100  C, it is not surprising that solar cookers are also used to pasteurize water at 65  C.

An advantage to using the GHE is that this technology can operate with lower intensity radiation, that is, on cloudy or winter days. PET bottles are generally used to pasteurize water because they are easily accessible in many rural areas, but empty wine bottles have also been used (Jagadeesh, 2006). While health concerns have been raised regarding the leaching of toxins into water from heating PET bottles using sunlight, Schmid et al. (2008) notes the health risk does not reach critical levels.
